Your Curated Chicago Weekend: 6/2-6/5

The Beach Boys couldn't wait for June in "Surfin' USA" all those years ago. Suffice it to say, they've returned to their happy place. And so have we, as it's finally time for the first sizable music festival of the summer. (We would have said "of the year," but Tomorrow Never Knows kicked some ass in January). Without further ado, your Chicago Curated Weekend: THURSDAY, JUNE 2ND Yonatan Gat @ The Hideout, 1354 W. Wabansia Ave., 9:00 PM WHAT: Israeli-American avant-garde guitar maestro Yonatan Gat brings his band back to Chicago for another mind-melting performance. SO WHAT: I’ve seen Yonatan Gat once before—last September—and it was one of the most memorable shows I’ve ever attended. He and his band set up in the middle of the floor and faced each other instead of the audience as they ripped through an hourlong set of intense instrumental punk-jazz. You’ll be mesmerized the entire time. NOW WHAT: Tickets are $10. Get ’em here.
