The three things you need to know today: Thu, May 31

1. Chicago rapper Vic Mensa kicks off the summer concert series at House of Vans tonight. The 8pm show is free to attend if you’ve RSVPed at the Vans website, but admittance is first come, first served, so you’ll want to be in line well before the doors open at 7.

2. It may be the last day of May, but Maifest in Lincoln Square is just getting started. The four-day German block party raises the first of many glasses starting at 5pm today; it’s free to attend.

3. Galway’s Druid Theatre is in residence at Chicago Shakespeare Theater through Sunday, performing Samuel Beckett’s absurdist masterpiece Waiting for Godot in a staging that our reviewer called “a bracing, existentialist thwack across the face.” There are two performances today at Navy Pier, at 1 and 7:45pm; tickets are $68–$88.
