Show: Georgia Anne Muldrow “Last year Georgia Anne Muldrow, already an underground soul sensation thanks to her 2006 album Olesi: Fragments of an Earth (Stones Throw), made it clear she’s just been getting warmed up,” writes Peter Margasak. “Working not just as a singer and a rapper but as a producer and a songwriter, she released an unstoppable flow of music, including two more albums and several compilations and collaborations. Erykah Badu has been getting most of the props, but lately no one in black music has approached Muldrow’s ambition, prolificacy, and range.”

9 PM, the Shrine, 2109 S. Wabash, 312-753-5700 or 866-388-4849, $15, $7 in advance; Muldrow also plays a free in-store at 5 PM today at Reckless Records, 1532 N. Milwaukee.

Dinner: Happy Chef Dim Sum Canton, a port city, traffics in many foods, and the Cantonese cuisine at Happy Chef reflects this delicious diversity.
