Weekend Jaunts: Saturday Edition

By Timmy Watson in Arts & Entertainment on Oct 14, 2006 2:27PM

In keeping with Chicago Artists' Month we are going to hit up some more good looking shows today. It is also about the time for everyone to get in the Halloween spirit. No better way than watching 24 hours of horror films.

Feel free to add more events in the comments section.

The Andersonville Arts Weekend kicked off last night with an opening reception. More than 80 visual and performance artists will be showing will show their stuff in bars, theaters, and whatever else they can find at Clark Street and Berwyn Avenue.

Lumpen’s Select Media Fest is having a visual/music show titled "Don't Media Panic!" with lots of artists tossing their hat in the ring for what will undoubtedly be an awesome event. The show will go on from 4 p.m. – 1 a.m. at Heaven, 1550 N Milwaukee 2nd floor.

• Speaking of getting into the Halloween spirit, starting at noon today Music Box Theatre, 3733 N Southport, will have their 24-hour horror film fest. The entire schedule is here, but The Thing is playing at 12:30 a.m. and that’s really all you need to know.
