Christmas was three days ago, but are you going to let that stop you from seeing the latest Trans-Siberian Orchestra show, "The Lost Christmas Eve," and miss out on the laser show and the fake smoke and the bursts of real fire, not to mention the 70s-style prog rock? Are you high? There are two chances to catch the magic at Allstate Arena today.
Fresh off a fall TV debut on Adam Devine's House Party, Skokie native Liza Treyger performs her "stoner-sweetheart" stand-up with coheadliner Megan Gailey and host Marty DeRosa tonight at the Comedy Bar. Molly Adams writes, "Treyger uses jokes to explore the strange social position of many young American women in the modern age."
The holidays may be wrapping up, but don't ever stop doing things that are totally hokey and ridiculous (by which we mean superfun and awesome). For instance, perhaps you want to go see Atomic Punks, a tribute to early Van Halen. A David Lee Roth-alike screeches and does the splits (fingers crossed) while a dead ringer for Eddie V. shreds. To hell with Hagar. Check them out at the House of Blues tonight.
