Featured musical and dance performers include the jazz trio Whirlpool and the various artists of RagaMala: A Celebration of Indian Music.

Theatre-wise, check out a September 13 evening performance of Sideshow Theatre Company’s 9 Circles, staged across the street at the Storefront Theater (66 E. Randolph).

On the visual arts front, there’s Stefan Sagmesiter: The Happy Show and Mike Andrews: Not Your Grandma’s Future Juice Bar, among several others.

Admission is free.
