The Music Box Theatre teams up with the Film Noir Foundation once again for Noir City: Chicago 5, a festival featuring overlooked titles and rarities along with some classics. It all starts tonight with screenings of two Cy Endfield films, Hell Drivers (featuring a young Sean Connery) and Try and Get Me!, starring Lloyd Bridges. See our sidebar for more.
Kill All Comedy is one of Chicago's strangest comedy collectives, which is saying a lot. On the last Friday of the month, they pull together some of their best sketches for a showcase at the Hideout. The Reader's Gwynedd Stuart has more.
The Whigs headline day one of Logan Square's street festival, the Boulevard; Dugas and Gentleman Hall also perform. Everyone is welcome, even Tories and people who make bad jokes about the British.
