Though only supposed to run the past two Saturdays, two more performances of NOT ART, a production by Abraham Werewolf, have been added to the schedule in the coming weeks at the Gorilla Tango Theatre. NOT ART is a comedic, Almost Famous-esque glimpse into the relationships between members of fictional band D'Artangnan as the bandmates spar over creative differences. The show is loosely based on the Yasmina Reza's play "Art", which is currently running at Steppenwolf Theater. Comedy troupe Wunderkind opens at G.T.T. with their latest show, "Hey T-Rex, We're going to shoot you."
Gorilla Tango Theatre, Weds. Feb. 11th and 18th, 8 p.m., Purcahse tickets here.

Today the community-based t-shirt design company Threadless launches its second installment in the Select Series with a t-shirt collection curated by filmmaker Patrick O'Brien to benefit the Patrick O'Brien Foundation. O'Brien, who was diagnosed with Lou Gehrig's disease in 2005, is in the process of creating a documentary film that will raise awareness about the disease. 100% of the proceeds from t-shirt sales will benefit his foundation, which will help him complete the film.

You know what goes great together? Gossip Girl and PBR. At least they think so down at Bar DeVille in West Town, where they're swilling $2 cans of the tasty beverage during their Monday night viewing party. We tend to agree and here's guessing our Ed-in-Chief Marcus is already at the bar, waiting for it to open.
Bar Deville, 701 N, Damen, Mondays, 7 - 8 p.m.
