Music

Show: Tyler Jon Tyler‘s “cleanly jangling guitars, simple melodic bass lines, and stomping drums are rooted in the early-90s indie-pop of Washington, D.C., and the Pacific Northwest,” writes Brian Costello. The local three-piece are playing a free show in support of their debut seven-inch, out last month on Trouble in Mind; the Yolks headline and the irresistibly charming, borderline wholesome Sleepovers, led by husband-and-wife team Dan and Annie Boldon, open.

9:30 PM, Empty Bottle, 1035 N. Western, 773-276-3600, free.

Dinner: A Tavola Tiny Ukrainian Village storefront with an equally tiny but satisfying Italian menu and, arguably, the best gnocchi in town.

2148 W. Chicago, 773-276-7567
