Art exhibits, denim sales and Gaga love

Meredith Gregory

CULTURE VULTURES: Wicker Park's historic Flat Iron Arts Building kicks off its 2010 Spring smARTshow! with a First Friday celebration. Explore two floors of art displayed among more than three-dozen resident artists' studios and living spaces and watch out for the impromptu performances throughout the evening. The show continues through the weekend. 6 - 10 p.m., 1579 North Milwaukee Ave. $5 donation

DENIM DREAMS: Did you get paid today? Spend your hard-earned cash over at the Warehouse Sale at the Congress Plaza Hotel. We're talking about up to 80 percent of retail prices for designer denim, from labels such as Seven For All Mankind, AG Jeans, Antik Denim, BCBG Max Azria. Continues all weekend. 2 - 8 p.m., 520 S. Michigan Ave. $5, RSVP for free admission

GO GAGA: Is there form of artistic expression Lady Gaga isn't influencing these days? First music, fashion and now theatre, in the form of "In Gaga We Trust," a sketch show performed by comedy troupe White Rainbows. The LGBT-friendly show explores self-identity issues and society's expectations -- something Lady Gaga could surely relate to. 9 p.m., Hydrate, 3458 N. Halsted St. $10
