Lurrie Bell & Mississippi Heat
7 p.m. at Fitzgerald’s; $40
Per an annual fundraiser for the Mental Health America of Illinois dubbed "Jammin' Away the Blues," Lurrie Bell (son of harpist Carry) carries on his family trade with award-winning – 2007's Living Blues magazine’s Most Outstanding Guitar Player – spiritual soul. Bell's music taps into the healing backbone of the genre to support the MHAI's "Changing Minds, Changing Lives" program. Simply Renee & The Blue Notes open.

Dracula: A Tragedy
7:30 p.m. at Redtwist Theatre; $15
Get in the Halloween spirit by cozying up to the Lord of the Night. Drac shows are often rather large affairs, but this new adaptation of the Bram Stoker novel promises a greater intimacy. In fact, given Redtwist's famously parlor-sized performance space, you might end up sitting in the bloodsucker's lap.

Sankai Juku
7:30 p.m. at Harris Theater for Music and Dance
Columbia College and the MCA bring this Butoh (absurdist Japanese dance style) performance called Hibiki: Resonance from Far Away.
