The citywide indie-rock fest Tomorrow Never Knows kicks off this evening at multiple locations—Schubas, Lincoln Hall, and Smart Bar among them. This year, the fest will incorporate "indie hip-hop, outlandish dance, and other not-so-yawny subgenres of music." Tonight's highlights: Bear in Heaven, Born Ruffians, and Supreme Cuts.
"Greetings From the Holy City," a show of photographs by Jason Reblando of contemporary residents of North Lawndale, is currently on display at Jane Addams Hull-House Museum alongside an exhibit on the Conservative Vice Lords, who were active in the neighborhood in the 1960s.

A few gripping personal monologues constitute the best things about the show," according to Keith Griffith.
