There are weekly Global Dance Parties across the street at the new Szold Hall, plus occasional shows at the Old Town location (909 W Armitage Ave at Fremont St). However, the bigger concerts staged by this lovable Lincoln Square institution, featuring folk, blues, country and world-music acts, are held up in the more capacious Maurer Hall. Take in everything from Senegalese hip-hop to tropicalia for little to no cost on World Music Wednesdays. It’s still a school, too, by the way: satisfy your undying urge to learn the Autoharp or oud.
