Nothing's funnier than Canadians at summer camp.
The 3 Penny Was Here: A Lincoln Hall Movie Night
7 p.m. at Lincoln Hall; free
Continuing its celebration of the space's former resident, 3 Penny Cinema, Lincoln Hall presents a double feature sure to cure any lingering winter blues. "Wet Hot American Summer" and "Meatballs," two summer-camp classics from different eras (2001 and 1979, respectively), offer sophomoric laughs, color-war battles and at least one graphic display of guy-on-guy action. Enjoy $3 Bud drafts, $3 Busch tallboys, $3 s'mores and half-price mac 'n' cheese.
The Streets On Fire
9:30 p.m. at Empty Bottle; free
It's not often you get to see a buzz band for nothing, let alone three. This garage-dance-rock act headlines HEAVEmedia's showcase of emerging Chicago bands for good reason, having gained a lot of local support for its debut EP, Hot Weekend (see Loud Loop Press's 10 Chicago Bands to Watch). The Nothingheads and Yours Truly & The Heroes support.
8 p.m. at Chicago Dramatists; free
A week to write, an hour to rehearse. This low-key gig, a monthly event at Chicago Dramatists, gives playwrights the chance to mix it up on stage and see what rises. What'll it cost you for a taste? Exactly one hour of your time and exactly zero of your dollars.
