Swedish fuzz-rock frontrunners Truckfighters have kicked off their first ever U.S. tour in celebration of the band's tenth anniversary. The highly respected trio - recently called "the best band that's ever existed" by Queens of the Stone Age frontman Josh Homme, hits Reggie's tonight for an 8 p.m. show. (2105 S. State St., $10, 17+)


5Rabbit Brewery comes to the Fountainhead tonight. They'll be pouring 5 Rabbit Golden Ale & Passion Fruit Wit-bier, making a beer cocktail or two, and serving up a Latin-inspired menu specifically for the occasion. (1970 W. Montrose, 6-9 p.m.)


Imagine a story of epic proportions performed by seven actors on a single, 21 square foot platform, where the performers rely solely on their bodies and voices to create all the props, scenery, soundtrack and characters. Now imagine they are telling a story of Superman fighting against Lex Luthor to save the Midwest’s beloved High Speed Rail system. That's the basis for Superman 2050, playing 9 p.m. tomorrow for one night only at Links Hall. Tickets are available here.
