Chicago Sun-Times
Are you out in it? We're on it. All the street-level tunes, flicks, chow, cocktails and more from sources around the city ...

Even better than the real thing

January has been some unofficial tribute band month in Chicago's clubs. The preposterous posing culminates Friday night in a 1990s tributapalooza at the Abbey Pub, 3420 W. Grace. The bill features the bands Nevermind (a Nirvana tribute) with the Chicago-based bands Given 2 Fly (a Pearl Jam tribute) and Angry Chair (an Alice In Chains Tribute). Doors at 8 p.m. Friday; tickets $10 in advance and $12 at the door.

Also, if you're still on a high from the Metllica shows (or if you missed them), try out this odd twist: Beatallica is part tribute band, part live music mash-up, playing the music of the Beatles and Metallica — at the same time. Songs include "Sgt. Hetfield's Motorbreath Pub Band," "I Want to Choke Your Band" and, our favorite, "And I'm Evil," a campy take on "And I Love Her." Sounds like a trly weird outing for father and son. Doors open at 8 p.m. Saturday at Double Door, 1572 N. Milwaukee; admission is $8.
