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

Everything is Terrible!, a group that creates mashups of found footage from VHS tapes, returns to its hometown. There's a double billing of two recent video projects, Comic Relief Zero and Everything Is Terrible! Does the Hip-Hop, tonight at Lincoln Hall.

Ex-Cult, a band best known for ushering in the 90s garage revival, is playing tonight at the Empty Bottle. Ex-Cult are straight-up old-school punks, playing dark, creepy proto-hardcore. Their latest LP, Midnight Passenger, is an evolution of their bleak nihilistic sound. It is basically the opposite of a feel-good record, but maybe you're into that sort of thing.

Stroll through Roscoe Village tonight while indulging in a wine tasting. Twenty area bars will have wine and food specials, each guest will receive a complimentary wine glass, and there will be a complimentary trolley making the rounds when things get too swimmy.
