Handcuffs, Hooley, and Sheer Pop Perfection
The Gene Siskel Film Center’s Second Annual Irish American Movie Hooley kicks off tomorrow night and runs through Sunday. Also, in an Irish vein, Durty Nellie’s in Palatine is having a Halfway To St. Paddy’s Day tomorrow. The Trinity Irish Dancers perform at 7:00 p.m., followed by music from Bagpipers, Logical Fleadh, and The Ploughboys.
One of the most iconic albums in rock history will get some time in the spotlight on Saturday night as the Brian Wilson Celebrates Pet Sounds 50th Anniversary tour visits The Chicago Theatre. Wilson, the guiding force for Pet Sounds and much of the Beach Boys’ canon, will be joined by band members Al Jardine and Blondie Chapman on gorgeous tunes like “Wouldn’t It Be Nice,” “God Only Knows,” and “Sloop John B.”
