During the late '90s, the Hanson brothers - Taylor, Isaac and Zac - MMMbop'd their way into our hearts, and unfortunately, into our heads. After three years, Hanson left their record label, feeling that they were lacking creative freedom. They're currently working on a new album that is scheduled for release next year.
THEY’RE STILL AROUND?: Yes, “MMMBop” legend Hanson is still around and playing the House Of Blues with other class acts like Steel Train and Sherwood. What better way to relive the awkwardness of middle school than watching the teen idols of yesterday get down with the kids of today? 329 N. Dearborn St.; River North. Doors open at 4:30 p.m. (school night) and show starts at 5 p.m. All ages. $31 at the door. $29 in advance.
ANTICHRIST SUPERSTAR: The Chicago International Film Festival is underway, and one highlight of this year’s fest is psychological horror “Antichrist,” which stars Willem Defoe and Charlotte Gainsbourg. Written by Lars von Tier (“Dancer In The Dark” and “Dogville”), “Antichrist” follows a grieving couple who come to terms with the death of their toddler by retreating to a cabin in the woods. Note to self: Never venture to a lonely cabin in the middle of nowhere if your life is written by Lars von Tier. AMC River East 21, 322 E. Illinois St.; River North. 7 p.m. $25.
ROCK YOUR ‘BODY OF SONG’: Openly gay punk-rocker and singer-songwriter Bob Mould plays the Metro with The Bob Mould Band, touring in support of spring’s “Life And Times.” Alec Ounsworth of Clap Your Hands And Say Yeah opens. 3730 N.
