Weekly Agenda: Jan 20th – 24th: Are You Goth or Are You Glam?


Tuesday, January 20th

Get Up With The Get Downs
Super fun James Brown cover band, complete with a full horn section and a bunch of really great dudes. This seems like a nice generic date to take an OK Cupid boo or Tindr match to, but really, do you want to date anyone who wouldn’t accompany you to a drone show in an unheated basement in Pilsen? Nah.

You still have a few hours left to RSVP for free for a bunch of local weirdo pop.
