CHICAGO — Yes, we know it's cold out. But that doesn't mean there isn't fun to be had in Lincoln Park and Old Town Monday.
"Our Living Room Show: An Event to Benefit Letters to Santa" at The Second City's UP Comedy Club, 230 W. North Ave.
For 10 years, Wilco frontman Jeff Tweedy has auctioned off private "Living Room" concerts at The Second City's annual 24-hour marathon during the holiday season. This year, he's bringing the living room to Second City, where 258 people can watch Second City alumni and "Saturday Night Live" cast members produce laughs and Tweedy play a 1-1/2-hour set. There are still a few tickets available for the event starting at 7 p.m. Tickets cost $300 to $1,000 with proceeds going toward Second City's "Letters to Santa" project serving Onward Neighborhood House.

A weekly tradition, "This is the jam where we like to make it funky!!" according to the club. Listen to Carl "Mojo" Kennedy on keyboard, Dan "Flava" Kristan on the bass, Anthony "Golden Boy" Bracco on six-string guitar and Robert "Doozem" Dicke on the drums. Admission is free.
Punk Rock Monday with Punk Rock DJ Sickboy at Delilah's, 2771 N. Lincoln Ave.
