3 Things To Do Today

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

A Hip-Hop Aesop: Jazzed, Bopped and Beat-Boxed
10 a.m. and noon at eta Creative Arts Foundation; $5-$6
Turn off the Lil' Wayne and turn to this new spin on ten classic Aesop fables, which offers morality plays with a hip-hop beat. Fables include "The Boy Who Cried Wolf", "The Tortoise and The Hare", "The Bee and Jupiter" and many more. Recommended for grades K-8.

Jakob Dylan and Three Legs
7:30 p.m. at Park West; $25
We'd hesitate to recommend going to see the former Wallflowers' frontman (and Bob Dylan's son), if not for two reasons: his backup singers, Neko Case and Kelly Hogan. These semi-local alt-country luminaries add some major cred to the proceedings. Don't expect to hear "One Headlight," but do expect lots of cuts from Dylan's new album, appropriately titled "Women and Country."

Rock 'n' Bowl Comedy Showl
9:30 p.m. at Diversey River Bowl; $5
Bowl a few frames and enjoy sets from local comedians Irving Typs, Jeff Hansen and Marty DeRosa at this Logan Square alley. Dave Odd hosts, and 25-cent wings and $2 bottles of PBR are available to make the laughs come a little easier.
