Screening at Columbia College's Hokin Hall as part of Feminism Flatlined: The New Girl Series, the documentary Wonder Women: The Untold Story of American Superheroines celebrates superwomen of the fictional ilk, but also real-life feminist superheroes like Gloria Steinem and Kathleen Hanna (Bikini Kill, Le Tigre).
Andrew Todryk, aka Vacation Dad, performs at the Burlington—Leor Galil compliments his "blissed-out percussion loops, delayed synths, and smidgen of reverb-smeared vocals." Bones and Hunter Husar open.
From Jail to Yale: Serving Time on Stage, currently in production at the University of Chicago Logan Center for the Arts, is a one-man show that details an ex-con's road to redemption.
