Spider Saloff

Earlier this year, the veteran Chicago singer took a huge artistic risk in writing the songs and script for her one-woman show at Victory Gardens' Richard Christiansen Theater, "The Roar of the Butterfly." The songs proved far superior to the script, with a couple of the tunes lingering in memory. They usually turn up when Saloff performs in a club, a more felicitous setting for her. All the more because she'll be playing Katerina's, an uncommonly intimate room that has become her informal performance home. 6:30 to 9 p.m. Saturday at Katerina's, 1920 W. Irving Park Rd.; $10; 773-348-7592 or katerinas.com
