When you say Nighties at the Bottle Top, the first thing I think is "I can't afford that kind of dominatrix," but the phrase is really just the name given to a new series of art exhibits in the space above the Empty Bottle. Organized by an as yet unnamed collective of artists, "Nighties" will run the first Saturday of every month, for one night only. This month's show, a "free-for-all" curated by Thea Liberty, includes photography, prints, drawings, paintings, and 3-D paper dolls by a dozen or so contributors. Upcoming months will feature shows with themes like "portraits of women by women" and "memory against history." Shows open at 8 and run until the bar downstairs closes; they're free with admission to the club, though donations will be accepted. The November 1 lineup downstairs includes Stones Throw hip-hop artists Peanut Butter Wolf, Wildchild, Dudley Perkins, and DJ Romes; tickets are $15, $12 in advance. The Empty Bottle is at 1035 N. Western; call 773-276-3600.
