AT THE PIG
It’s that time of the year again. Hash Bash is still a few months away, but that doesn’t mean you can’t celebrate Bob Marley and his lifestyle. Join headliner Turbulence in celebration of Marley’s birthday at the Blind Pig’s 10th annual party on Saturday. Doors open at 8 p.m. and tickets are $25 in advance or $30 the day of.
Make sure to check out the Chicago Classical Oriental Ensemble as seven musicians from countries as far as Syria and Morocco perform tomorrow night. Selections include music from three Egyptian composers. The performance starts at 8 p.m. and tickets are $20 to $40.
AT THE LEAGUE
Have you ever thought you’ve got what it takes to be on American Idol? If so, your first steppingstone should be Michigan Idol. You have the chance of winning $500, it’s free and Simon Cowell won’t be there. Tryouts begin at 9 p.m. and run until 11 p.m. tonight in the League Underground.
AT THE ARK
With its all-women-of-color cast and men as props, “The Vagina Monologues” has courted controversy in recent years. It visits The Ark on Sunday without any of that. But it’s still an important piece of theater. One show is at 2 p.m. and the other at 7 p.m. Tickets are $25.
