Tonight we celebrate the 5th Anniversary of Movieoke at The Whistler! Act out your favorite movie scenes in front of a bar full of super awesome people and win prizes, like free passes to see The Punk Singer, a new documentary about Kathleen Hanna (Bikini Kill, Le Tigre), and gift certificates from Odd Obsession Movies, Facets Multi-Media, and the Gene Siskel Film Center. 9pm-2am.
Sunday, November 24th: Negative Scanner at The Whistler (10pm, 21+, FREE)
Negative Scanner remind me a lot of tragically under-appreciated ’80s Chicago post-punks DA!, but heavier and a little more pissed off. The common thread is a great one though: both bands have a brooding magnetism about them and both feature incredibly powerful female lead singers. Come for the storm-cloud riffs, stay for Rebecca Valeriano-Flores’ haunting battle-cries.
With Le Tour. Showtime 9:30pm.
