UNCLEAN HUMOR: Check out some twisted humor at the launch of AXE Twist at The Park West. A talented line-up of rising comedians associated with funnyordie.com come to Chicago as part of its Twisted Humor Tour. 6 p.m., 322 W. Armitage Ave. $5-$10

KEEP IT REAL: Check out some real hip-hop tonight at the House of Blues. Rapper Talib Kweli and sidekick Hi-Tek, otherwise known as Reflection Eternal, have been keeping it real in a hip hop world often taken over by bling-bling and overly-produced mainstream tracks. They've finally released a follow-up to their 2000 album Train of Thought, the upcoming Revolutions Per Minute. As hip-hop God Jay-Z once famously proclaimed, "If skills sold, Truth be told, I'd probably be, Lyrically, Talib Kweli." In other words, skills may not always necessarily sell, but they're appreciated when it comes to experiencing true hip-hop. 7:30 p.m., 329 N. Dearborn St. $28

HOT CHILE: Tonight's Chilean wine tasting is worth the ticket price alone to hang out in the South Loop's gorgeous Chicago Illuminating Company. It doesn't hurt that there will be wines from 50 vineyards available for tasting along with delicious Chilean food. 6 p.m. - 8:30 p.m., 19 E. 21st. St., $25
