Happy birthday, Marilyn Manson! We bet you have a great 2017 with the whole new administration based on fear and stuff. That’s gotta be good for your spooky business!

Also, tell all your friends to subscribe to the Chicago mailing list. We give away stuff.


THIS_WEEK_ON_BYTWe write stuff. Here’s some of that stuff from the last week that may be applicable to your preferences!







  • Do some daytime stuff:
  • The Empty Bottle’s got a nice afternoon art opening called Music Friendly Art (MFA) opening: Steven Husby’s “Glide Reflection.”
  • Comedy party/open mic/brunch gathering Late Late Breakfast returns to the Hideout for another afternoon of fun.
  • Drive-in exploitation classic Freaks is at the Music Box for a fun pre-noon screening. Kick your weekend off in a real weird way!
  • Like being cold and running? Ok weirdo, here’s the Chicago Polar Dash.
  • The 2nd Annual illumination of the 606, A Walk with Light, happens today starting at 4. Neat!
  • Four Paws, a new animal shelter in Lombard, opens today and they’re throwing a big party to celebrate!
  • Head to the Sideshow Gallery on Western for a damn Crystal Pop-up and celebration of all things cleansing and new-agey.
