The three best things to do today in Chicago

Written by
Nick Kotecki

1. A night with the witches

The Tomorrow Never Knows winter music festival continues with Nashville psych rockers All Them Witches, which takes its name from a book of witchcraft featured in the classic 1968 horror film Rosemary's Baby. The group's music is just as eerie—and good. Expect the band to play new tracks off its latest effort, Dying Surfer Meets its Maker. (Lincoln Hall, 2424 N Lincoln Ave, 9pm. $15)

2. Leave your comfort zone

In the racially-charged stage drama Byhalia, Mississippi, a poor white couple from the South struggles to stay together when the child they've been expecting is black. (The Den Theatre, 1329–1333 N Milwaukee Ave, 7:30pm. $20-$30)

3. Pop into the museum

Both of the Pop Art exhibits on display right now at the Museum of Contemporary Art are an absolute must, but seen in tandem, they are among the best exhibitions in the city. Each has plenty of Andy Warhol, but the "The Street, the Store, and the Silver Screen: Pop Art from the MCA Collection" contains the overwhelming bulk of his work. (Museum of Contemporary Art, 220 E Chicago Ave, 10am. General admission)
