Short of the King of Pop himself, it doesn't get any better than Who's Bad. The world's longest running Michael Jackson tribute band stages a multimedia celebration of everything MJ at Chicago's House of Blues. Since 2004, Who's Bad has assembled a world-class cast of brilliant singers, top musicians and Broadway dancers to perform all of Jackson's legendary hits from the days of Jackson 5 to Off the Wall, Thriller, Bad and beyond. Uncanny vocals, intricate dance routines, glitzy jackets and glittery gloves help recreate the total Michael Jackson experience. No wonder some of pop music's biggest acts including The Four Tops, Boys II Men and The Backstreet Boys have scrambled to share the stage with this astonishing incarnation of pop's one true King.

KFAR Jewish Arts Center's annual "It's not a 'Silent Night' event" presents Jewmongous.
Jewmongous, a comedy song concert, is the colicky, uncircumcised brain child of Sean Altman: the golden-voiced song-writing wiz and former leader/founder of Rockapella (of Where In The World Is Carmen Sandiego?).
Sean was featured in Time Out New York's cover story "The New Super Jews" and in The New York Times feature about "the Jewish Hipster Movement."
Featuring original songs include the fractured Passover story song "They Tried to Kill Us (We Survived, Let's Eat)," which was featured on NPR's Fresh Air with Terry Gross; the ska-inflected "What The Hell Is Simchas Torah?"; the bluesy "My Pact With Satan;" the venomous anti-Jews-For-Jesus punk anthem "Jews For Jesus"; the cowboy romp "Long-Tongue Shloime;" the dysfunctional Bar Mitzvah anthem "Today I Am A Man;" and the swinging "Blow, Murray, Blow!", about a Yom Kippur shofar (ram's horn) blower so virtuosic that his playing purges listeners of all their sins, no matter how despicable.
All faiths welcome, even the faithless.
