Tue 4/26: The storytelling series Chicago Moth StorySlam comes to Lincoln Hall (2424 N. Lincoln) to present a collection of tales inspired by the theme "romance." Guests are encouraged to come prepared with their own stories of love, good and bad. 8 PM

Wed 4/27: Indie-pop singer-songwriter Frankie Cosmos plays Lincoln Hall (2424 N. Lincoln). The Reader's Kevin Warwick writes, "Unlike so much twee-flavored indie-everything it's actually easy to never mind the preciousness of the arrangements if you’re not into that sort of thing, because the subtle power and command of Cosmos alone will be more than enough to lure you into loving her records." 7 PM
