Looking for something to do today? Agenda's got you covered:

Michael Vallera, one half of the duo Cleared, opens for Johnny Young at Empty Bottle. "In solo settings Vallera sticks to an electric guitar and pedals, but his music hardly sounds limited; without another player to establish a rhythm or set boundaries, he stirs up masses of sound that feel as big as weather systems," says Bill Meyer. Johnny Young headlines; Michael Vallera, MT Coast, and Double Morris open.

The Motherfucker with the Hat, Steppenwolf's latest production, is in full swing. Tony Adler says "it's got more life and fun in its little finger than any hundred other recent works I've seen about urban losers—including Steppenwolf's own version of the David Lindsay-Abaire script Good People."

The Renaissance Society has as a retrospective of work by New York artist R.H. Quaytman on display, "including notable painted panels that challenge grammatical notions of photo-based imagery."
