Cranking it out at the Hideout tonight


Head to the Hideout in Bucktown tonight at 9 p.m. for “The Wine Cycle,” an intimate evening with Theater Oobleck’s Dave Buchen and Chris Schoen, who’ll be cranking out music and images.

The combination is called “cantastoria,” a pre-industrial prequel to the movies, and they’ll be scrolling and singing through the works of Baudelaire, Moses, Pliny the Elder and others. Admission is $5 (free if you’re broke, more if you’ve got it), at the door only. Buy your own wine.

The “The Wine Cycle” is a small taste of Chicago’s first-ever Banners & Cranks Festival of Cantastoria, taking place through May 9.
