Stand-up comedian Janeane Garofalo, one of our comedy recommendations for fall, performs at Mayne Stage.
Hosted by the Empty Bottle and Salonathon's Jane Beachy, the Fall Ball at Logan Square Auditorium features music from Mucca Pazza, dancing from Erin Kilmurray of the Fly Honeys, and Swaguerrilla DJs.
Can't figure out what to do with your old family videos? Home Movie Day is coming to your rescue at the Chicago History Museum. Film archivists will inspect your reels, advise you on video transfer, and project them onto the big screen, with musical accompaniment by pianist David Drazin.
