At Katerina's, Chicago Bound: The Great Migration features a history of Chicago blues presented in conjunction with the Goodman Theatre's production of Pullman Porter Blues. NPR's Cheryl Corley narrates; Autumn in Augusta performs with singer Lucy Smith.
At Women & Children First, Mattilda Bernstein Sycamore presents a reading of her memoir of queer activism, The End of San Francisco, which Yasmin Nair described in the Reader last week as "a text that both remembers and reminds but is also a record of a historical and cultural forgetting."
British postpunk band White Lies plays Metro tonight. Los Angeles-based duo In the Valley Below opens.
