WaterTower Theatre opens 14th Out of the Loop Fringe Festival, dedicated to alt-theater
There’s a lot more going on in the world of theater than what Broadway, off-Broadway and even well-funded regional companies are producing. That’s why a fringe fest is an excellent opportunity for discovery, as WaterTower has demonstrated over more than a decade. Out of the Loop is back with a crowded lineup of performances (music, comic, dance, dramatic) over 11 days, including work from queer artists like Ebony Stewart to WTT’s first-ever 24 HR Play Fest, a quasi competition where playwrights, directors and actors write, rehearse and mount all-new works on a common theme with only one day’s prep. Get a season pass and discover what’s really going on in theater.

Lesbian rockers Hunter Valentine bids (sort of) adieu with So Long for Now Tour appearance at Trees
The queer all-girl rock group Hunter Valentine has been touring and recording (and making appearances on programs like Showtime’s The Real L Word) for more than a decade; just last Sunday, the group released its latest EP (on, appropriately enough, Valentine’s Day). But all good things must come to an end … or at least go on hiatus. The members are coming to Trees Feb. 26 as part of their So Long for Now Tour, so this could be your last chance (at least for a while) to catch them. (Also appearing on the bill are Faded Grace, Hush Money and Cruella.)
Trees, 2709 Elm St.
Doors at 7 p.m.
Show at 8 p.m.
