1. Monotonix and Turbo Fruits
9 p.m. Sunday at Hideout, 1354 W. Wabansia; $12
One of the most exciting live rock bands out there, Monotonix is known for performing on the floor among the crowd, setting instruments on fire and stealing drinks from audience members. When the members found themselves banned from most venues in their hometown Tel Aviv, they decided to take the show on the road. Touring the U.S. and Europe since 2006, theirs is a concert you experience, not watch. Catch Monotonix's stage antics and Led Zeppelin/Thin Lizzy-inspired riffs, as well as opening act Turbo Fruit's Kinks-esque neo-surf/garage rock for a night your eardrums won't soon forget.

For more of this weekend's music, including Jeff Tweedy, Cheer-Accident and Buckwheat Zydeco, check out the calendar.

Blago Superstar!

| | Comments (0)

Second City Theatricals debuts its latest show, Rod Blagojevich Superstar!, starting Tuesday. The show parodies ‘70s rock operas, most notably Jesus Christ Supestar!, only in this one Jesus and Mary Magdalene are played by Rod and Patti Blagojevich. Let the hilarity (and expletives) ensue!


We know G-Rod’s been comparing himself to some pretty heavy historical figures of late, so Jesus isn't too much of a stretch. Bleeping golden! Our biggest question is, who will play Judas? Roland Burris? Dick Mell? Pat Fitzgerald? The possibilities are endless.

See the show for just 14 bucks Tuesdays and Wednesdays at 8:30 at the Second City Theater (1616 N. Wells) starting next week.
