A great opportunity to remember “I Remember Nothing.” Chicago-based Joy Division tribute band The Unknown Pleasures will mark the 40th anniversary of the release of Joy Division’s Unknown Pleasures with a show at Martyrs’s on Lincoln Avenue this Saturday night. The performance will cover the entire album, along with other songs from the U.K. band’s repertoire. The Handcuffs, who are wrapping up their latest album in the studio, will also perform that night, along with Quiet!. Showtime is 8:00 p.m.

Sunshine Boys, whose 2018 Blue Music debut was an absolute masterpiece, will return to The Wine Goddess venue in Evanston on Saturday, August 3. According to a post on Facebook, the trio will be performing all the songs from a brand new release at this gig. Here’s betting they strike gold again with this new effort.

It may seem a bit early for making yuletide plans, but presale tickets start tomorrow for The Brian Setzer Orchestra’s 16th Annual Christmas Rocks show at the Chicago Theater on November 16. Setzer fans already got an early present when the reunited Stray Cats released their 40 album back in May.

The New Duncan Imperials have a gig coming up this Saturday night at FitzGerald’s in Berwyn. The trio recently released its Hunny Bunny five-song EP, featuring the clever and irresistibly catchy country rock tune “I Paint The Line.” Thrift Store Halo, whose Consolation Prize Fighter EP is currently rocking the independent music charts, will be the opening act.

Jazzin’ At The Shedd continues its summertime run tomorrow night at the Shedd Aquarium. The night-time event is being held every Wednesday from 5:00 to 10:00 p.m. through August 28. The Shedd promises jazz, drinks, fireworks, and “the chance to look nature in the eye.”

The Chicago Film Society continues its Oh My, It’s Pre Code Cinema series on August 7 at Northeastern University with a screening of Merrily We Go To Hell. Director Dorothy Arzner’s 1938 film stars Sylvia Sydney and Fredric March in a tale of booze, journalism, and adultery. Northeastern University is located at 3701 W. Bryn Mawr in Chicago.
