Intuit: The Center for Intuitive and Outsider Art
Whether you think of your body as a canvas or not, you'll be mesmerized by this display of tattoo art (and circus banners featuring tattooed performers). The focus of this exhibit will be on Midwestern collections and collectors from the turn of the century to the "Renaissance" of the 1960s and 1970s. Runs through January 9.
Holiday Leftover Show-a-Rama
7 p.m. at Holiday Club; free
Spend too much money over the holidays? You can save a little cash tonight, because this variety show from the n.u.f.a.n. ensemble costs nothing. You'll get more than you pay for, too: music, improv and sketch comedy (including somethign called the "Eat or No Eat" sketch). $3.50 frozen PBR schooners should make it all go down smoothly.
9 p.m. at Schubas; $20
The L.A.-based singer-songwriter, who's written tunes for everyone from Weezer to Avril Lavigne, kicks off a four-night, career-spanning stand as he goes through his 2004 album, Letters, in its entirety. If that's not your favorite, submit your requests via Twitter using hashtag #butchwalkersetlist and Walker just might play it during Friday's fan-centric show.
