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

East Coast punkers Converge, whose latest release All We Love We Leave Behind is filled with a "battery of skull-rattling riffs," according to Kevin Warwick, stop by the Metro in Wrigleyville. Torche and Kvelertak open.

Postmodern novelist Don DeLillo shares excerpts from The Angel Esmeralda, his 2011 collection of short stories that was nominated for the 2011 Story Prize and the 2012 PEN/FaulkNer Award for Fiction.

At Saki's in Logan Square, local comedian Joe McAdams hosts "IMBG: The International Movie Betting Game," a sort of game show in which contestants must guess the plot twists of an obscure movie. A panelist of other local stand-ups, including Chad Briggs and Bill Cruz, offer their assistance.
