Betty Rules band members will be sneaking into Women & Children First tonight at 7:30 to play a couple of songs from their off-Broadway musical hit. Alyson Palmer, Amy Ziff and Elizabeth Ziff's show chronicles the trials and tribulations of an unsigned band in a signed-band world and will be running for seven weeks at the Lakeshore Theater beginning May 6.

If you buy a ticket for next Wednesday's (May 12) show, you can pay half price, support Equality Illinois and the Lesbian Community Cancer Project, and get admission to an after-party at Sidetracks where you can hang with the cast and other celebrities. To get your $17.50 or $25 VIP tickets, just call Equality Illinois (773-477-7173) and tell them you're a Women and Children First customer -- but do so before 5pm on Friday, or you'll have to pay full price.
