On Flavorpill: Events Today in NYC, SF, LA, and CHI


If you’re in New York: Head to Under St. Marks to catch a showing of Under the Rainbow from the Real HBO Summer Film Series tonight at 7 p.m. It’s a great, early ’80s farce starring Chevy Chase and Carrie Fisher.

If you’re in Los Angeles: It could be your last chance to hear the blues-infused beauty of Gomez for a while (they have an opening slot on Pearl Jam’s upcoming European tour). Hit The Wiltern tonight at 8 p.m. to soak up all the indie rock you can.

If you’re in San Francisco: How can you not go see Jim Henson’s (alleged) favorite project, The Great Muppet Caper , playing tonight at Red Vic? Muppets+jewel heist+frame job+breaking the fourth wall = unadulterated awesome.

If you’re in Chicago: Listen to some amazing audio documentaries — think This American Life-like radio stories melded with music and found sound as the Third Coast International Audio Festival sets up another edition of Edible Audible Picnic on the Great Lawn of Millenium Park.
