*FREEBIES OF THE WEEK
Blues Fest is only the beginning; this week is jam-packed with goodies that don’t cost a cent. Chicago art-scene legends in their own right, Jim Nutt and Gladys Nilsson discuss Your Pal, Cliff, an exhibition of sculptures by their fellow Chicago Imagist H. C. “Cliff” Westermann on June 14 at the Smart. … Break out the stinky cheese and pinot gris: Seven-time Gramophone award winner Stephen Hough launches this year’s Grant Park Music Festival with Tchaikovsky’s Piano Concerto No. 1 on June 10. … Music makes way for witty banter the following night, when Peter Sagal and the rest of the crew from NPR’s Wait Wait … Don’t Tell Me take over Millennium Park for a live taping. … Last but not least, everyone’s favorite excuse to hoof it alfresco jumpstarts June 11: Summerdance features one hour of dance lessons followed by two hours of shimmying to live music four nights a week.
Don’t forget: Tickets to Summer Lovin’, Chicago’s annual bash cosponsored by the Auxiliary Board of Northwestern Memorial Hospital and featuring our top 20 singles of 2009, are available now. The party, which benefits the hospital’s brain tumor research, takes over the MCA on Friday, June 19th.
