See the Pixies at the Aragon

4ad.com/pixies

The Pixies return to the U.S. this fall for the 20th anniversary of Doolittle.

YOUR BONE’S GOT A LITTLE MACHINE: It’s been 20 years since the Pixies classic “Doolittle” came out, and the album continues to knock the socks off college freshmen n00bs who discover it for the first time. But Chicagoans get a chance to hear it live and in its entirety when the Pixies stop by the Aragon for three nights, with openers Bad Lieutenant (Nov. 19), No Age (Nov. 20), and Jay Reatard (No. 21). 1106 W. Lawrence Ave.; Uptown. 6:30 p.m. $47.50. All Ages.

MAKE YOUR OWN HAPPY HOUR: Thanksgiving is next week, and Nacional 27’s mixologist, Adam Seger, will give a demonstration on making two holiday-themed cocktails. One of them uses pumpkin ( the “Latin Pumpkin Eggnog”) and the other uses cranberries (the “Holiday Mojito”). 325 W. Huron St.; Near North Side. 5:30 p.m. $20. 21 and older.

ABOUT TIME: The train wreck that is this season’s “Project Runway” finally comes to an end, though it feels more like putting a rabies-infected dog to sleep a la “Old Yeller.” You won’t have to waste those clever one-liners in the comfort of your own home, because LGBT-friendly sports bar Crew also has its own finale party, and you could win a free drink if you correctly guess the winner of the show. 4804 N. Broadway St.; Uptown. 9 p.m. 21 and older.
