CHICAGO — Head to Lincoln Hall or The Tonic Room for some music or stop by Whole Foods Market for a worldly culinary experience on Wednesday.
Future Islands at Lincoln Hall, 2424 N. Lincoln Ave., 9 p.m.
Baltimore-based synthpop band Future Islands comes to Chicago the same week it released its fourth studio album "Singles." The show's $17 tickets have already sold out, but if you're really into new wave beats, you can probably find a ticket somewhere. Baltimore's Ed Schrader's Music Beat is opening for the headlining trio.
Global Flavors & Drinks at Whole Foods Market, 1550 N. Kingsbury St., 6-9 p.m.
The grocery store will serve light appetizers and cocktails inspired by various countries around the world to celebrate the end of the Whole Planet Foundation Prosperity Campaign. Wine and beer will also be served. The first 100 RSVPs will receive a small gift. The store asks for a $1 donation to the campaign. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve a spot.
Brother Moose at The Tonic Room, 2447 N. Halsted St., 8 p.m.
A mix of folk and Americana in the sound, Brother Moose is a duo with Louis Bardales as the singer/guitarist and Raul Cotasquipe on drums. Dylan Anderson and Gia Margaret will open for them. Tickets are $5.
