Saturday, August 24
Women & Children First
Iconic Andersonville bookstore Women & Children First celebrates its 40th anniversary with this feminist-slanted block party featuring live comedy, a drag queen story hour, an all-female Beastie Boys tribute band, and an all-female/nonbinary glam brass marching band, plus free food and drink from A-ville hotspots including Hopleaf, Bar Roma, and Middle East Bakery.
But still totally lovable 🙂
This is weirding me out. It just is.
The singer announced a string of pop-ups today, including a Chicago location. It will only be open for one day – THIS FRIDAY – from 3:06-9:06 pm to celebrate the release of the new album ‘No. 6 Collaboration Project’ that will come out the same day. It will be located in Wicker Park at 1830 N. Milwaukee Ave.

The ninth season of Vans House Parties series at House of Vans Chicago (113 N Elizabeth St) kicked off last week with a bang when rapper Vince Staples took the stage. But coming up this Saturday, June 15, legendary alt rock band The Breeders will perform.
The Vans House Parties series will also continue its tradition with the headlining artist acting as a curator, hand-picking all supporting talent and will be creating a personalized visual art experience for fans. This year, that experience will be expanded to include interactive art takeovers, immersive installations, murals and more. Additionally, to support and elevate Vans’ commitment to emerging talent, one burgeoning musician will be chosen by the headliner to open each Vans House Party show.
Check out the schedule!
