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

Sound Opinions at the Movies, hosted by Greg Kot and Jim DeRogatis, takes on Wattstax, Mel Stuart's documentary about the 1972 Watts Summer Music Festival, the "black Woodstock." Catch it at the Music Box.

This month's theme at Reading Under the Influence ("Because everyone needs a literary hangover") is Eight. Head to Sheffield's to see featured readers including Rob Duffer and Amy Guth.

"Twenty years into his career as a recording artist and six since OutKast announced its hiatus, Antwan 'Big Boi' Patton is still plagued by the common perception that he's merely the straight man to the flamboyantly weird Andre 3000, when in fact he's always been at least as far out there as his former partner," writes Miles Raymer in Soundboard. Catch Big Boi, alongside Killer Mike, Fishhawk, Renegade, and Real T@lk, at Park West.
