Immediate Sound Series @ Hideout

Head out for humpday and hear some astounding jazz from the likes of Ken Vandermark, Jeff Parker, Nate McBride and John Herndon plus DJ sets by Bluesoundgrasspoetry where John Corbett "interdigitates sound poetry and bluegrass". What could be a more interesting way to slide into the easy side of the week? Tickets are $8 (for two sets!) and the Hideout is located at 1354 W. Wabansia, Chicago.

Celebrating Cities--London, Paris, Chicago @ The Art Institute of Chicago

If you have a free 30 minutes during lunch hour, head over to the Art Institute for an interesting-sounding express talk. The event starts at noon in Gallery 100 and is free, although you'll still need to pay admission. The Art Institute is located at 111 South Michigan Avenue.
