Written by

1. Dance the night away with local musicians

Local acts like Towkio, Stefan Ponce, Malcolm London and more are playing an unforgettable night of music at East Room, thanks to Topman and underground music platform Boiler Room. RSVP now and pray you get a spot. (East Room, 2354 N Milwaukee Ave, 11pm. Free with RSVP)

2. Get rowdy at the cabaret

The rock-and-roll cabaret The Fly Honey Show returns to the Chopin Theatre for the seventh time. Brace yourself for a wild night. (Chopin Theatre, 1543 W Division St, 10pm. $22–$80)

3. Uncover the spooky side of Chicago history

Let Gordon Meyer guide you through the West Side on his walking tour, Bizarre Bucktown, in which he reveals the hidden history of the neighborhood. (Spoiler alert: There may be ghosts involved.) (Walsh Park, 1722 N Ashland Ave, 6pm. $15)
