    Dimension Gallery: Infinity X Loop

    Damn it, Dimension Gallery, can't you just let yourself be pigeonholed? But, no – and we blame Colin McIntyre's Resonant Lung for encouraging this sort of thing – you've got to offer up an intriguing wonderment that's partly a visual arts event and partly an experimental musical gig, as Portland's Randall "Amulets" Taylor surgically modifies cassettes to craft self-contained repeating units with configurations for longer loops, literally running the tape out of the housing and through the gallery space. "The loops surround the viewer with the magnetic tape itself in a ceaseless circuit, creating a sonic tapestry that stretches and degrades toward infinity." Recommended.

    Northern-Southern: Deliriums

    Now here's a compelling thing: That maker of musical machinery, Matthew "Octant" Steinke, has a new solo exhibition in this intimate gallery (curated by the John-Pauls' own Phillip Niemeyer). We mean, who wouldn't want to experience the odd marvel of "three acoustic robots singing to each other, round-robin style, mimicking a group therapy session," right? And, oh, look – that Brenner fellow reviews the show right here.

    Ali: Fear Eats the Soul (1974)

    Essential Cinema: The Bitter Tears of Rainer Werner Fassbinder: Fassbinder consciously borrows the melodramatic storyline of Douglas Sirk’s All That Heaven Allows to create one of his very best movies. Fassbinder brings his best Brechtian impulses to his story about the culturally doomed love affair between a washerwoman in her 60s and an Arab immigrant half her age.

    Art on 5th: Carrie Graber

    This Southern California native is influenced by the hot summers and warm glowing colors of her home, her oil paintings featuring scenes of daily life, combining a 19th-century style of capturing light and illumination on canvas with her own fascination with American midcentury architecture. Some excellent work here, hell yes, and recommended.

    Bruce Robison & Kelly Willis Show, Paula Russell (6:00)

    More than a decade passed since either Bruce Robison and Kelly Willis released a solo album, but the past year brought both back in for an individual close-up. The former offered up 2017’s easy and freewheelin’ Bruce Robison & the Back Porch Band, while his spouse delivered this spring’s stellar Back Being Blue. Thankfully their individual projects haven’t quelled the couple’s impulse to fill the Broken Spoke dance floor.

    Davis Gallery: Of Warp and Weft

    The elegant carved wood sculptures of Caprice Pierucci. The photographs of delicate cheesecloth drapings by Charles Heppner.

    Espresso, Robby, Indoor Creature, Cosmic Chaos

    Alternative L.A. outfit Espresso fall somewhere between the diluted funk of the Red Hot Chili Peppers and the indie punkadelia of Alt-J. “Space Ship, Space Dick” transfixes with Gil Scott-Heron sensibility. Leading support comes from Indoor Creature, local rock from a chance encounter at a Sushi restaurant on North Lamar. Their 2015 debut Present Thinking channels the provisional pleasures and concerns of young adults with forward thinking indie-pop.

Nina Hernandez looks into that right here.

    Ivy League-educated soulstress Jamila Woods blessed fellow Chicagoan Chance the Rapper with vocals on the nostalgic “Sunday Candy” and heavenly “Blessings.” Texas native Sarah Jaffe evolved her precocious vocals from small-town folk acoustics and indie orchestrals to sci-fi electro-pop on last year’s Bad Baby. Together with a much-teased “special guest,” they mark five years for KUTX.

    Theatre

    The Antipodes

    It's the newest work from Pulitzer Prize-winner Annie Baker – the playwright of The Flick, The Aliens, Circle Mirror Transformation, and more – and, because Hyde Park Theatre's Ken Webster has, like, connections in the industry, this is only the second production of it in the country. This one's about professional fabulators in pursuit of the ultimate yarn, and the cast – oh my, the cast! – features Lowell Bartholomee, Tom Green, Anne Hulsman, Maria Latiolais, Saurabh Pradhan, Blake Robbins, Mical Trejo, Shanon Weaver, and Dave Yakubik, all directed by that same Webster. Note: Do yourself a big favor and see this one.
