You know the hair. Now get to know the artist underneath it. The "cybersoul" pioneer mixes soul, funk and rock to create a sound that's as innovative as it is danceable. Her new album, "The Arch Android," comes out May 18.
That Sordid Little Story
7:30 p.m. at Studio Theater; $5 suggested donation
New Colony's beguiling "11:11" maybe have just closed, but the company isn't resting on its rave reviews, not when there's new work to be done. This developmental staged reading (with original music) tells the tale of a man who comes to believe that his life story is contained in a 1963 concept album. It's at the city-owned Studio Theater (at the Chicago Cultural Center) for today only.
Puerto Rican Dinner
7 p.m. at La Cocina de Galarza; $20
I Wish Lessons' world food tour continues with a stop at this Logan Square family-owned favorite, where you'll start with a discussion of food and cultural traditions, then follow up with a prix-fixe dinner. Prepare for large portions...and don't forget that it's BYOB.
