5 things to do today: Sunday, July 14
West Fest The Oblivions, who were reviving garage rock a decade before Jack White and the Hives, top the bill on Sunday, after a set from quirky Canadian indie rockers Born Ruffians. Derrick Carter leads the charge on a second stage devoted to Chicago house. Youngsters can join in musical workshops and games at Kid Fest, and even man's best friend gets a bite of the goings-on: PUPFest's canine wading pool, agility course, dog "tattooing" and "paw cooling stations." Chicago Ave between Damen Ave and Wood St. Noon–10pm. $5.
Aerial Dance Chicago: Gravity It’s not surprising that ADC’s new program takes physics into consideration, since the company bills itself on its aerial prowess. Especially at the height of their stunts, the high-flying technicians weave indelible webs of intrigue—both literally and figuratively. Ruth Page Center for the Arts. 2pm. $30.
Willie Nelson & Family With more than 200 recordings under his belt, Willie Nelson is one of America's most unlikely institutions: His nasal sing-talk is often off-key; his ragged delivery takes some getting used to; and though he's known first as a country singer, he fits the standard profile even less than his old running partners Waylon, Johnny, Kris and Merle. Ravinia Pavilion. 7pm. $90–$100; lawn $43, advance lawn $38.
North Shore Flea This Sunday flea market featuring vintage and DIY goods gets an upgrade this year: It's now produced by the same people who put on Uptown's Vintage Garage. Highwood Recreation Center. 9am–5pm. Free.
Tartuffe Court's Molière Festival continues with the French playwright's comedy about a religious hypocrite pulling a con on a pious man whose family can't break the spell. Director Charles Newell's production follows on the heels of his The Misanthrope, which used largely the same cast. Court Theatre. 7:30pm. $15–$65.
