Dating for Nerds @ Sheffield's

Come to Sheffield's tonight to meet smarty, geeky singles at Dating for Nerds, where there will be board games and trivia quizzes to break the ice. You may even win a librarian action figure, superhero postage stamps or more nerdy prizes while you're there. Admission is $20 in advance, $25 at the door and includes one drink. 7pm-10pm at 3258 N. Sheffield Ave. Call 312-265-6085 or email nerdsatheart[at]gmail[dot]com for registration and information.

May or May Not Practice Space Residency @ Schubas

Local indie-pop group May Or May Not celebrates the release of its sophomore full-length, A Kaleidoscope Of Egos, with a month-long residency at Schubas. The band promises to pull out all the stops during these shows, while previewing material from Egos -- which runs the gamut from New Pornographers-inspired indie-rock to the psychedelic pop of Panda Bear's Person Pitch. Charlemagne and Atlantic Divide open the show. $6. 9pm.

Dignity Waits

Dignity Waits, the solo show by Jamie Buell, winner of the first season of the acclaimed Impress These Apes contest earlier this year, will be performed tonight at 8:00 p.m. at the the Playground Theater, 3208 N. Halsted Street, and will be running each Monday through October 1.
