Looking for something to do this weekend? Well, HuffPost Chicago has got you covered: whether you're a fan of one of the most popular musicians in the country -- or one of the most popular right-wing pundits in the country -- or looking for something a little further off the beaten path, this weekend has got something for everyone.
Dave Matthews Band at Wrigley Field
Perhaps the most memorable thing the Dave Matthews Band has done in Chicago is dumping 800 pounds of human waste on an architectural boat tour. The band hopes to lay less of a stinker this time around, as they come to Wrigley Field for a pair of concerts on Friday and Saturday nights. Tickets start at $50.
Viva! Chicago Latin Music Festival
In a different vein entirely, the city will help celebrate this week's Mexican Independence Day with a two-day festival of Latin music in Millennium Park. The lively weekend (well, Friday through Saturday) will feature performances, dance, a DJ set, a children's area and visits from local team mascots.
Songs About Buildings And Moods
Another completely different musical event happening this weekend, the group Accessible Contemporary Music is hosting a phonic architectural tour of Chicago on Saturday morning. Walking tours leaving from the Chicago Cultural Center will visit six buildings in downtown; at each location, musicians will perform an original composition inspired by the building. From the Aqua Tower to the Monadnock Building, the tour promises a variety of beautiful architecture and engaging new compositions.
Lebowski Fest 2010
A little more light-hearted, and sexier too, is this weekend's annual Lebowski Fest. The Movie Party on Friday night will feature a screening of the classic Coen Brothers film The Big Lebowski on 35mm film. The party will also feature a live performance by a Creedence tribute band, and a Big Lebowski-themed burlesque show by the fine folks at Vaudezilla, entitled "Rollin' Outta Here Naked." Also expect plenty of White Russians, bathrobes and abiding.
Right Nation 2010
If that's not crazy enough for you, how about this: a Glenn Beck-sponsored, Andrew Breitbart-supported, Aaron Schock-attended rally protecting America's very freedom from being stolen by the socialist government in Washington? We can't go -- the Right Nation 2010 conference isn't issuing any press credentials to anyone -- so you'll have to get out there in our place. Tickets start at $77, but for the privilege of a meet-and-greet with Beck himself, be prepared to shell out $1,200. Whatever it takes to keep the socialists at bay.
