The Congress isn’t just active after sundown. It also hosts the Logan Square Indoor Winter Farmers Market on Sunday mornings through March 28.

“[Metal band] Danzig was doing a sound check on a Sunday,” promoter Michael Petryshyn said. “We were out in the market eating these great BLT sandwiches. And there was this very dark show opening up in four hours, and you go in the lobby and there’s strollers and artichokes.

“It was bizarre, but cool.”
