Windy City Rollers

Looking for something to do today? Agenda's got you covered.

The Windy City Rollers are celebrating ten years of derby domination with the Black and Blue Gala. WCR founders Juanna Rumble and Sister Sledgehammer host the night of eating, drinking Revolution brews, and dancing to the tunes of Haymarket Riot and Rory Lake at Crowne Plaza Hotel. Here's to the best jammers, pivots, and blockers in the biz!

This is the perfect week to wine and dine; through 9/28 notable wine bars offer special deals and exclusive tastings for Taste Around Town. Participating venues include Gilt Bar, Carriage House, Au Cheval, and Max's Wine Dive.

Spoon is stopping at the Chicago Theatre tonight, but make sure you get there early to check out opener EMA. Kevin Warwick writes, "The Future's Void (Matador), the second full-length from EMA, is brooding and prophetic, its vast sound as bottomless as the future. Erika M. Anderson's vocals often seethe within towering walls of high-octane noise and dark, industrial folkā€”the raw rhythms and feverish ravings of 'Neuromancer,' for instance, recall Michael Gira's most ethereal moments."
