No longer do you need to schlep to one venue for a movie and another for a concert.
Taking the leg work out of it is this weekend's Chicago International Movies & Music (CIMM) Festival, combining music and movies at indie venues around town.
With a variety of performances and more than 50 music-centric films from around the world, here's your rundown on what to see (and hear) this weekend:
ADULT.'s Three Grace(s) Triptych w/ Hubble
Macabre Detroit electronic duo ADULT. created this avant-garde horror film trilogy of three interconnected shorts soundtracked by the group's dark yet entrancing dance music. Opening act Hubble plays minimalist, looping guitar work set to eye-popping images from the world's best-known telescope.
Tonight 9:30p. Wicker Park Arts Center, 2215 W. North Ave. $15.
Don't Follow Me (I'm Lost): Bobby Bare Jr.
An intimate look into the real life of veteran Chicago country rocker Bobby Bare Jr. as he tours and tries to feed his family via side jobs like delivering lost luggage. The doc is followed by a set of Bare's eclectic, intelligent country rock ranging from booty-stomping party anthems to singer/songwriter introspection.
Sun 7p (film) & 10p (concert.) The Hideout, 1354 W. Wabansia Ave. $12.
DJ/VJ JayVe Montgomery mashes footage of traditional folk music throughout the globe into a high-tech, interactive production incorporating footage from CIMM Fest films, live tweets, and offbeat stock footage to create all-encompassing sensory pleasure zone for both your ears and eyes.
