Rock Your Heart Out Volume II
8:30 p.m. at Bull & Bear; $15
“Bachelorette” star Ed Swiderski hosts this event to raise money for his new organization, the Global Education Open Technology Foundation (http://www.geotf.org/). American Idol’s Jeffrey David Goldford will play a set, to go along with a two-hour cocktail reception with appetizers and drink specials. A raffle includes tickets to see Dave Matthews Band at Wrigley Field.

Leon Russell
8 p.m. at SPACE; $35
Session guru Leon Russell has credits with everyone from Eric Clapton to Frank Sinatra, flanked by gigs with Phil Spector’s Studio group, and later his own Church Recording Studio. This tour will probably showcase more of his country side, the kind he used to light up the Billboard charts with Willie Nelson duets in the late 70s. (Gavin Paul)

Bar AIDS
5-11:30 p.m. at various locations; $40
More than 35 bars and restaurants throughout Lakeview, Lincoln Park, Andersonville, River North and even Oak Park participate in this annual event to raise money for AIDS research. Most places offer drink specials, and a raffle includes prizes like tropical vacations and spa packages. Check out a list of participating places here.
