    R. Kelly is performing at Roosevelt University.

    AH, ‘SPACE JAM’: Many milestones mark R. Kelly’s career: composing hip-hopera “Trapped In The Closet,” recording a song for “Space Jam,” and being accused of having sex with a minor. Relive all of those magical moments when the man stops by Roosevelt University’s Auditorium Theatre tonight and tomorrow. 50 E. Congress Parkway; South Loop. 7:30 on Tuesday. 8 p.m. on Wednesday. $48 to $78.

    COOKING UP SOME SHORT FILMS: Tuesday night television can seem like a wasteland of intelligence—sorry, “So You Think You Can Dance?” is only good when a 300 lbs., “Twilight”-reading shut in thinks she’s Shirley Temple—so throw down the remote and check out the ninth edition of the Indie Incubator Film Festival at The Original Mother’s. There’s no cover for this short-film festival, but there are $5 Jaeger shots and $6 Red Bull and vodka cocktails. 26 W. Division St.; Near North Side. 7 p.m. No cover.

    MINDLESS FUN: Want to feel classy but still in the mood for zombies? Head over to Pilsen’s Antena and catch some zombie-inspired artwork in “Zombie: A Mindless Affair.” The exhibit is entering its final days, and unlike the subject material, it won’t rise again. 1765 S. Laflin St.; Pilsen. Check out Antena’s Web site for more info.
