Califone
9 p.m. at Lincoln Hall; $15-$18
Hot off an opening gig for Wilco, the much overlooked Chicago-based folktechnics tone down some of their experiments based on dreams and found sounds to orchestrate a live rendition of frontman Tim Rutili's ambitious film project, "All My Friends Are Funeral Singers" (the band released an accompanying album of the same name in 2009). The film involves a psychic woman battling some unruly ghosts, and the music is appropriately harrowing with simple, acoustic-based loops that might feel at home in Iron & Wine's catalogue. The band plays a more straightforward "rock show" on Wednesday night.

Limoncello Dinner
7-9 p.m. at Salute Wine Bar; $25
This special edition of the Gold Coast bar's tasting series takes on some unique flavors with a four-course pairing menu tonight. Selections include red leaf frisee salad with tangy goat cheese and pomegranate vinaigrette (with lemon-pomegranate cello); braised pork belly with a blood orange-vanilla beurre blanc, sauteed brussel sprouts and pancetta (with blood-orange vanilla cello); traditional cannoli (with pistachio creme cello) and amaretto-coffee ice cream with an over-size biscotti (with mocha cello). Call for reservations.

Sex & The City Trivia
7:30 p.m. at Ginger's Ale House; $5
What was Big's first wife's name? Who is Carrie's favorite designer? If you can answer these questions, you should be in good shape for this always-fun event, which you can play alone or with a group of your besties. We'd recommend skipping the Cosmos tonight, as Ginger's is an authentic Irish pub with lots of good beers available.
Check out more trivia options on Centerstage.
