Bar on Buena (910 W. Buena) is hosting a New Holland Brewing takeover tonight from 6-9 p.m. Featured beers include Night Tripper aged in New Holland's Zepplin Bend whiskey barrels, Envious, El Mole Ocho, Imperial Hatter and Mad Hatter/

Fountainhead is also getting into the Chicago Craft Beer Week spirit with $4 pints of LEft Hand Brewing's Ju Ju Ginger and Two Brothers' Monarch White. They'll also be pouring Two Brothers Reprieve, Left Hand TNT, Two Brothers Long Haul, Left Hand Nitro Sawtooth
and a Pin Firkin of Two Brothers Resistance. (1970 W. Montrose)


Tonight's "collision_theory" at Links Hall brings Bay area percussionist/electronic musician Alex Vittum together for the first time by prolific Chicago bass clarinetist Jason Stein to constitute the music component of the performance. Ohio-based choreographer/dancer/writer Colleen Leonardi and her collaborator Lily Skove are collision_theory alumnae, having created a dance video for Spooky Action—last season’s night of ‘silent movies.’ While these subtle and nuanced performers have never worked together, it stands to reason that their shared background will in some respect inform and unify their collaboration. (3435 N. Sheffield Ave., 7:30 p.m. Tickets available here.
