Ayako Kato/Art Union Humanscape 15th Anniversary Performance Japanese native Ayako Kato and dancers celebrate their 15th anniversary with an improvised set in the grand setting of the Cultural Center, featuring designs by video artist Edyta Stepien and music by Jason Adasiewicz (vibraphone), Hamid Drake (drums) and Jason Roebke (double bass). Be ready for a strong Butoh influence, which means lots of subtleties and engaging (that’s right) stillness. RSVP recommended at letbeayakoauh.eventbrite.com. Chicago Cultural Center, Dance Studio. 2pm.
Do Division Street Fest: Ariel Pink + Gaslamp Killer + Torche + Jeff the Brotherhood and more Shopping is merely one diversion at what is perhaps the city's most popular see-and-be-seen sidewalk sale. The vendors' wares along Division Street are rivaled only by the excess of street-side eye candy—other pretty, young things who bring their sartorial A-game. Lo-fi pop weirdo Ariel Pink surprised us, abandoning some of his kitschy puke-tactics on last year's rather lovely Mature Themes. Sure, there are still songs about schnitzel and pink slime, but the soft-porn soft-rock shows him growing remarkably in craft. Live, however, he still might jump into the crowd and lick your face. Trippy turntablist Gaslamp Killer hangs in the corners of beatdom with DJ Shadow and Flying Lotus. Also on tap for the fair: the stoner metal of Torche and the beer-guzzlin' Camaro rock of Jeff the Brotherhood. Division St between Damen Ave and Leavitt St. Noon.
