  • The Styrenes


Show: Styrenes “Formed in Cleveland in 1975 by Paul Marotta, the Styrenes (and their companion bands, the Electric Eels and Mirrors, which also include Marotta) often get thrown into the proto-punk grab bag because the keepers of the categories don’t quite know what else to call them. But like their mates Pere Ubu, the Styrenes are really a sprawling, ambitious, hard-to-pigeonhole concept,” writes Monica Kendrick.

10 PM, Empty Bottle, 1035 N. Western, 773-276-3600 or 866-468-3401, $10, limited $5 tickets.

Dinner: Old Lviv Ukrainian Food Restaurant A holdout from the days when Ukrainian Village was Ukrainian, Old Lviv still offers the traditional cuisine, from pierogi and blintzes to potatoes and sauerkraut, borscht and salad to schnitzel and stuffed cabbage.
