Hammer will hurt 'em

MC Hammer is one of the headliners for Macy's "Glamorama" event at the Chicago Theatre on Friday.

This should be good!

Pop music icons Cyndi Lauper and MC Hammer headline Macy's 10th annual Glamorama, happening Friday at the Chicago Theatre (175 N. State St.). Tix are still available for the "'80s"-themed event, which also includes a fabulous fall fashion show and a performance by DJ Berrie—whose father made a fortune as the manufacturer of the Troll doll.

Glamorama benefits the Auxiliary Board and Evening Associates of the Art Institute of Chicago, with tix ranging $50 (for show only) up to $1,000 (includes VIP premier fashion show seating and post-party at Macy's). Word is that the Minneapolis show was a big hit with fans, with the Macy's post-party decked out with Rubix Cube decorations, 1980s-themed cocktails and more. Call 312-443-3710 for more info.

DJ Berrie also spins the Glamorama after-after-party at Underground.
