8 p.m. at Logan Square Auditorium; $25
Loath to interview and even more loath to reveal their identities, The Residents offer only zany, cryptic antics – appearing in giant eye masks while wearing white tuxedoes, distributing David Lynch-like video productions long before Lynch went to film school - a near 70-album oeuvre, and their elaborate live shows. Some shout genius, citing some of their work in the Museum of Modern Art's permanent collection. Others shout absurd, citing the use of a photo of a woman fellating a small child as one of the band's first album covers. All we can shout is that they're on "The Talking Light Tour," and that should be enough to make you curious.
7 p.m. at Ruth Page Center for the Arts; $10-$22
George Bernard Shaw classified this socially conscious production among his "Plays Unpleasant." But while the two-and-a-half-hour show might occasionally drag, it's far from offensive to modern sensibilities. Expect a cleverly written and charmingly performed play about the hypocrisies abounding in the relationships between the sexes. Read the full Centerstage review.

6-7 p.m. at Goodman Theatre; $15 ($8 for students)
