The Chicago Underground Film Festival is back at the Logan Theatre with five days of decidedly unique programming (today through Sunday) that highlights the best in experimental cinema. Tonight's opening-night feature is Katherine Dohan and Alanna Stewart's What I Love About Concrete, a "homespun DIY fairy tale" about an angsty high school kid who turns into a swan. Jennifer Reeder's latest short video work, A Million Miles Away, precedes the screening.
DJ Joe Bryl spins choice cuts from the discography of Serge Gainsbourg in honor of the musician's 86th birthday tonight at Maria's Packaged Goods & Community Bar. Also, Cabbage-Head Men play acoustic versions of Gainsbourg's most popular songs.
Swedish alt-rockers the Sounds, who recently released their first album in two years, Weekend, play Metro tonight with Blondfire and Strange Talk.
