The three best things to do today in Chicago

Written by

1. Get your Game of Thrones fix

Even the most passive Game of Thrones fans will get a kick out of this British parody of the HBO megahit. See what Westeros looks like when it’s not so self-serious at Graeme of Thrones. (Broadway Playhouse at Water Tower Place, 175 E Chestnut St, 7:30pm. $27-$66)

2. Uncover deep truths about the human experience…sort of

Dr. Atop’s Journey to the Polygon of Suffering is just as weird as it sounds. Check out this bizarre, mysterious variety show during its Hideout engagement. (The Hideout, 1354 W Wabansia Ave, 5:30pm. $5)

3. Dig into post-punk rock

Check out Protomartyr, a group of gritty Detroit rockers, at the Empty Bottle tonight. Throw back some cheap beer and play a round of pool while you’re at it. (Empty Bottle, 1035 N Western Ave, 9pm. $15)
