As the weather in Chicago starts to dip into frigid temperatures, a wonderful way to keep warm on a winter weekend night is a strong drink, a nice mix of people, and a good show. You can have just that tonight at the Underground Lounge in Wrigleyville with the return of music, comedy, and art showcase Collaborate.
Collaborate helps to provide an open forum for local acts in a relaxed setting, providing a showcase for not only their art but also a meeting place for likewise talent (hence the name Collaborate). The night kicks off at 8pm with an open mic and visual arts showcase. Other highlights include Comedy Central comedian Prescott Tolk, WXRT praised band The Innocent, and Stealth Like a Canoe, a duo that bills their instrumentation as guitar, accordion, and sometimes rap. I don't know about you, but a good freestyle over a sweet accordion beat always makes my night a little better.
Collaborate is tonight at The Underground Lounge at 952 W. Newport Ave. Doors open at 7:30pm and cover is $10 for the whole evening of entertainment. The show is 21+
