Pearl Jam: Let’s Play Two

lets play two

Re-live the best part of the Chicago Cubs’ historic World Series win 2016—namely the sprawling and emotionally feel-good performances at Wrigley Field from Cubbies super fan Eddie Vedder and the rest of Pearl Jam. With Let’s Play Two, renowned director/photographer Danny Clinch captures the two incredible shows at the baseball super fan mecca that also became a must-attend destination for Pearl Jam fans, and the combination into this concert film will wow even the most jaded baseball and music fans. 7 PM. $15.Curt Stanski

Japanese Breakfast + Mannequin Pussy + The Spirit Of The Beehive

japanese breakfast

The title of Michelle Zauner’s album, Soft Sounds From Another Planet, does a fantastic job of summarizing the sound of her project Japanese Breakfast. Really any louder and Soft Sounds would be a raging club record, but her subtle mix of beats and subdued cosmic-sounding melodies make for an album that’s just as good to have on in the background as it is to dance to. At tonight’s Triple Rock, the dancing will surely will out, especially with critical post-pop punk darlings Mannequin Pussy turning up the volume early. The garage-y The Spirit of the Beehive open; Grab tickets early if you’re interested, this tour just sold out their last stop in Chicago. 8 PM. $12 advance, $14 door.Taylin Cooper

Videodrome

videodrome

“Why would anybody watch a scum show like Videodrome?” The Trylon is getting film fans in the right spooky October mindset with their series, Long Live the New Flesh: The Body Horror of David Cronenberg and they’ve kicked things off with the cult classic Videodrome (1984). In a role that’s not much of a stretch, James Woods plays a sleazy TV producer exposed to an underground signal that further warps his mind and body with perverted and disturbing hallucinations. It’s classic Cronenberg, it’s fantastic, and it also has a great performance by Debbie Harry. Monday-Tuesday, 7 & 9 PM. $8.Curt Stanski

The Dakota’s Facebook Live: Jonatha Brooke

Jonatha Brooke

If you do recognize the Dan Wilson-esque singer-songwriter Jonatha Brooke, it’s likely from her movie and television soundtrack work (including songs for Disney and Joss Whedon), although it’s her original and covers material (she was even invited by Woodie Guthrie’s daughter to adapt some of the legend’s unreleased music) that has won legions of fans. Before Brooke takes the stage tonight at The Dakota, she’ll talk to (Drinking with) Ian Rans on the club’s Facebook live stream about her incredible and still on-going body of music. 4:30-5 PM. Free. 7 PM. $30-35.Jennie Donnelley
