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

On James Blake's 2011 debut, "Blake had replaced R&B's sensuality with a particularly British wet-blanket vibe," writes Miles Raymer in Soundboard. "His new Overgrown (Polydor) has considerably more spark. He's still a moody guy, but on cuts such as 'I Am Sold' he emotes over snappy two-step beats—which makes his extended swoon far easier to get down with." Catch Blake's set at Metro. Falty DL opens.

Richard Hell discusses and signs copies of his autobiography, I Dreamed I Was a Very Clean Tramp at Book Cellar.

The Chicago Home Theater Festival, every day until May 12, lets you into people's houses under the guise of watching theatrical performances and building communal feeling. Today: Anna Felicity Friedman in Forest Park.
