There are plenty of shows, films, and concerts happening this week. Here's some of what we recommend:



Mon 6/25-Thu 6/28:
Superfly rolls back the clock on African-American movie heroes. Directed by Director X. R, 116 min. Various time, various prices.

Tue 6/26:
Next in the queue for Chicago's free movie screening is Groundhog Day. "Bill Murray plays an obnoxious TV weatherman from Pittsburgh forced to relive the same wintry day in a small Pennsylvania town over and over again until he gets it right, in an unexpectedly graceful and well-organized comedy (1993) directed and cowritten by Harold Ramis," writes the Reader's John Rosenbaum. 6:30 PM Pritzker Pavilion, Millennium Park, Michigan and Randolph, free.

Wed 6/27:
Fingerstyle guitar virtuoso Sarah Louise’s new Deeper Woods is a love letter to the natural world. 8:30 PM, Constellation, 3111 N. Western, $15, 18+.

Wed 6/27: Tracyanne Campbell works through the death of her Camera Obscura bandmate in a new duo with Danny Coughlan. "Campbell’s honeyed voice is as distinct and indelible as ever, projecting a blend of classic 60s girl-group sound and 50s dream-pop through a modern, Britpop filter," writes the Reader's Peter Margasak. 8 PM, Lincoln Hall, 2424 N. Lincoln, $20, 18+.

Wed 6/27-Thu 6/28: History resonates through Suzan-Lori Parks’s Civil War drama Father Comes Home From the Wars. 7:30 PM, Goodman Theatre, 170 N. Dearborn, 312-443-3800, goodmantheatre.org, $10-$40.

Thu 6/28: Oak Park Festival Theatre uncovers hidden depths in You Can’t Take It With You. 8 PM Austin Gardens, 167 Forest Ave., Oak Park, 708-300-9396, oakparkfestival.com, $32, $27 seniors, $15 students.

Thu 6/28:
In The Displaced, the ghosts of gentrification won't leave a young couple alone. "Bumps in the night blend with poignant social commentary," writes the Reader's Marissa Oberlander. 8 PM, Den Theatre, 1331 N. Milwaukee, 773-697-3830, haventheatrechicago.com, $20.
