On Sunday, John Belushi would have turned 61 years old. He’d have plans for a post-rehab, non-alcoholic beer with ol’ buddy Dan Aykroyd at the Billy Goat. He’d be preparing for a cameo in “Blues Brothers 7: Tweetin’ da Blues.” He’d be teaching at Second City.

Instead, Chicago bar Faith & Whiskey, 1365 W. Fullerton, is celebrating the late comedy great with a Belushi Birthday Blowout Weekend.

Tonight, a cover band yup, they’re called The Bluz Brothers will perform Jake and Elwood’s greatest hits from the Chicago-centric film that made such a mark. Music starts at 9 p.m., and there are costume contests.

Here’s an instructional video. Follow these moves …
