Event Spotlight: Dollar Store Super Summer Tour

The Dollar Store is going on tour! Of course, with Chicago being the show's home, you've been lucky enough to see the show whenever it's on. Fittingly, this Sunday the show kicks off their tour right here with a huge party at the Hideout featuring readings from Tobias Amadon Benglesdorf, Elizabeth Crane, Amelia Gray, Patrick Somerville, Caroline Picard, and Zach Dodson and Jonathan Messinger of Featherproof, among others. Come eat some barbeque (vegetarian desires will be kept in mind), enjoy improv by 1,2, Fag and Hag! and An Oak and enter into a raffle for which the prize is a custom-built, Featherproof-themed bike. 1pm-6pm at 1354 W. Wabansia. $8 admission; purchase your tickets here.
