Comedy troupe The Whitest Kids U' Know, NYC's purveyor of the crass and offensive, will make a one-night-only appearance at the Lakeshore Theater this Thursday. Known for their delightful vulgarity, the Kids will tackle everything from celebrity worship to potty humor, and will no doubt throw some beastiality somewhere in the mix. Prepare to giggle nervously.

Lakeshore Theater, 3175 N. Broadway, Thursday, Feb. 5, 8:00 p.m., Tickets $15.

There are a few things that make us nervous if they're five days late, but the Black History Month Kick-Off Concert at Navy Pier isn't one of them. Teen band "Trace," a product of the Intonation Music Workshop, will entertain the crowd with classic Motown, Blues and R&B hits . IMW is an after-school program that provides music instruction to children with limited access to arts education. Also catch performances by the Englewood Youth Idol Finalists and the Negro League Legends.
