1. Dance the rumba under the skyline

Check out Mbongwana Star, a seven-piece rumba/rock/electronica fusion band hailing from the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Plus, Chicago’s own Dos Santos Antibeat Orchestra is opening with a set of Latin dance music. (Pritzker Pavilion, 205 E Randolph St, 6:30pm. Free)

2. Watch Saturday morning cartoons, live

Emerald City Theatre revives the stage adaptation of School House Rock! Bring the kids and watch the classic hits like “Conjunction Junction” and “Just a Bill.” (Broadway Playhouse at Water Tower Place, 175 E Chestnut St, 10am. $16–$24)

3. Admire the work of the modern Audubon

Check out this incredible avian-centric exhibition by Chicago-based artist Tony Fitzpatrick, whose work you may recognize from record covers of Lou Reed, Steve Earle and the Neville Brothers. (DePaul Art Museum, 935 W Fullerton Ave, 11am–7pm. Free)
