Girl Talk @ the Empty Bottle

After his much-talked about appearance in September, Gregg Gillis of Girl Talk returns to the Bottle tonight to sample in the new year. Tickets are $25. Prep for the zaniness with our Transmission interview.

Hold Steady @ HOB

Ring in the new year with The Hold Steady at the House of Blues's Back Porch Stage , 329 N. Dearborn Street (be forewarned that the HOB's classification of the show as "adult contemporary" isn't strictly accurate). 10 PM, 21+, $45; tickets and more info here.
