The Chicago Community Bond Fund, a local group working to end pretrial incarceration and the cash bail system, is hosting its seventh annual end of year celebration. Take stock of the group’s trials and tribulations over the past 365 days while enjoying a panel led by Chicago Black Social Cultural Map, dance performances, a disco-influenced set from singer Akenya, and music from DJ Fre. This event runs from 6-9 PM at Hairpin Arts Center (2810 N. Milwaukee)—though an online option (livestream via Zoom) is available too! Tickets are $20, but no one will be turned away for lack of funds. (MC)

If you can’t stand most holiday shows, Annoyance gets it—which is why they’re bringing back their anti-holiday offering, It’s Christmas Goddamnit!, opening tonight at 8 PM at their home theater (851 W. Belmont). The show, directed by Ian Mullen, touches on “family relationships, secret marriages, racist uncles, and neighbors with secrets.” So much to unwrap! Performances are 8 PM every Saturday through 12/17; tickets are $25 at theannoyance.com. (KR)

In music tonight, there are plenty of options! Tenci, Macie Stewart, and Girl K play Sleeping Village (9 PM, 3734 W. Belmont, 21+) at 9 PM. And guitarist Marisa Anderson is at Constellation; Health&Beauty opens (8:30 PM, 3111 N. Western, 18+). Check out our music section for more ideas. (SCJ)
