Written by
Grace Perry

1. Dance your butt off in Pilsen
Experimental electronic music pioneer Nicolas Jaar brings his latest record, Sirens, to Thalia Hall tonight. This is way beyond your average DJ set. (Thalia Hall, 1807 S Allport St, 9pm. $25-$30)

2. Try your hand at stand-up
Okay, you don’t have to perform if that’s not your thing. Watch Chicago’s best stand-ups test out new material at weekly open mic at Cole’s. (Cole’s 2338 N Milwaukee Ave, 9:30pm. Free)

3. Catch movie-inspired live lit
Movies may be fiction, but Flick Lit allows Chicago storytellers to recount the real-life ways the silver screen has influenced their lives. (Logan Theatre, 2646 N Milwaukee Ave, 7:30pm. Free)
