“You mean it’s a video festival devoted to CATS?”

Today is the final day to catch Izzy’s Looks, a clothing pop-up at the Gard3n event space (688 N. Milwaukee, Suite 204). Izzy (mononymous like Cher) is a stylist and personal shopper with a penchant for thrifting funky, fresh vintage and modern duds in sizes small to 3X. But buying clothes from her isn’t just about her taste; it’s about the experience of being seen. Her clients keep her inspired to help them see their own beauty and imagination, and she works hard to help people find clothes that make them feel special and unique. Check out her collection from 11 AM-7 PM, and be sure to ask about her photo services, Mystery Boxes, and monthly subscriptions. (MC)

Elevated Films Chicago is a not-for-profit that shows independent films in outdoor venues in a variety of Chicago neighborhoods each summer. Tonight’s screening of Hypochondriac might test some casual viewers just dropping by the lawn near Leavitt and Diversey (along the north branch of the Chicago River) as the film is a psychological horror and thriller centered around themes of mental illness and an LGBTQ+ couple, but rest assured that the movie was well-received at its premiere earlier this year at the South by Southwest Film Festival. Elevated’s screening tonight is preceded at 7 PM by a cocktail hour featuring live music, and the film will be immediately followed by a conversation between the film’s writer and director Addison Heimann, and Chicago filmmaker, artist, and professor Jennifer Reeder. Required tickets are $15 and available on Eventbrite. (SCJ)

For a slightly different film experience (the challenge here will be to stop smiling), head over to the Music Box tonight (3733 N. Southport) to take in the mighty Cat Video Fest 2022, a 72-minute program of great cat videos culled from the worlds of animation, music video, and plain old internet uploads from households like, perhaps, yours (that is, if you’re one of the many cat companions that seem to read the Reader. To your masters I say “Meow.”) 10 percent of all ticket proceeds will be donated to Red Door Animal Shelter in West Ridge. Tonight’s screening is open to all ages and starts at 7:15 PM; there’s another chance to see this only-in-theaters show on Sat 7/30 at 2 PM. (SCJ)

Tonight you have a chance to see and hear some musicians that we’ve previously covered in the Reader: the Saint Louis-based emo band Foxing headlines at Bottom Lounge (1375 W. Lake), with Greet Death and Home is Where opening. Tickets are available to those 17 and older, and the concert starts at 7:30 PM. And bassist Pino Palladino, a Welshman and longtime supporting player and session professional who has recorded and toured with everyone from the Who (post-John Entwhistle’s passing in 2002) to Erykah Badu and Bettye LaVette, hits the stage at SPACE in Evanston with a band featuring fellow “session pro” and multi-instrumentalist Blake Mills. Icelandic singer-songwriter Arny Margret opens, and the show starts at 8 PM. Tickets are still available, and this show is open to all ages. (SCJ)
