You don't need to road trip to Wellsville to reunite with your pals from The Adventures of Pete & Pete. Lincoln Hall (2424 N. Lincoln Ave.) will host stars from the blessedly idiosyncratic Nickelodeon classic for a podcast and pair of musical performances on October 26.

Danny Tamberelli and Mike Maronna, who played the respective Petes, continue to capture adventures together through their podcast. They'll kick off the event with a live recording of "The Adventures of Danny and Mike."

Tamberelli will then take the stage with his garage rock band Jounce, and we can only hope for a rendition of "Summerbaby."

You can't pay tribute to Pete & Pete, which celebrated its twentieth anniversary last year, without the musical stylings of its house band, Polaris. The trio behind the show's iconic theme, "Hey Sandy," will perform for only their second concert EVER. Until headlining a sold-out show at a Pete & Pete reunion last year the Orpheum Theater, Polaris had never played a show. Polaris' first Chicago stop is part of the band's inaugural tour. No word on whether Nona's dad will join them on stage.

Pete & Pete
enthusiasts can also expect themed artwork, pancakes, and a photo booth, according to Consequence of Sound.

Listen to Polaris play the elusively enunciated "Hey Sandy" below, and reimmerse yourself in a town where superheroes walked among us ("Pipe!") and the altering substance of choice was an Orange Lazarus.

Tickets are available on Lincoln Hall's website. $20 for Polaris, $10 for the podcast taping; $25 for the both the podcast and Polaris performance
