The Beer Nuts annual St. Patrick's Day show was supposed top take place at the brand spanking new Bottom Lounge tonight, but the new venue didn't get their liquor license in time so the show had to be moved to the MUCH cozier Liar's Club. Get there early if you have any hopes of actually getting in since we're sure the room is gonna pack up fast.

1665 W Fullerton, 9 p.m., $10, 21+

DJ Vinyl Richie helps the drunks at Delilah's celebrate people who really digging on St. Pat's. The combination of his wide ranging punk rock collection, and the fact that it's dollar beer night at Delilah's, should help even the grumpiest leprechaun get into the spirit of the holiday.

2771 N Lincoln, 9 p.m. - 2 a.m., free, 21+

Simian Mobile Disco, rock producers turned semi-superstar DJs -- land at Sonotheque tonight. They've big-beat blends appeal to the Dark Wave Disco set, and one can make the argument that the duo's "We Are Your Friends" should be the unofficial theme song of that local cabal (though we hope and pray they never play it again). Fittingly, the duo will be supported by -- surprise! -- the Dark Wave Disco DJs tonight.

1444 W Chicago, 9 p.m. 2 a.m., $12, 21+

Kevin Flynn and the Avondale Ramblers are relatively new additions to the city'salready healthy Irosh rock scene, but they've already established themselves enough to warrant a few sets at FitzGerald's annual St. Patrick's Day Festival. The combo explores the more traditional side of Irish musical history, eschewing the more punky hooliganism of other modern musicians supposedly taking their cues from the Emerald Isle's sounds.

6615 Roosevelt R, Berwyn, 2 p.m. - 12 a.m., $10/$5 for kids 12 and under, all ages
