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

"Every good rap crew needs its 'rampant id' character, the one who’ll jump in on an otherwise sedate track or show and gleefully tear everything up," writes Miles Raymer in Soundboard. "In Rick Ross’s Maybach Music Group that role is capably filled by. . . Gunplay, aka the Human Bath Salt." Catch Gunplay's set at Double Door.

At the University of Chicago's International House, George Packer discusses his book The Unwinding with Northwestern University professor Peter Slevin.

Germans don't just get down in October, they party in May, too. And this weekend they're taking over Lincoln Square (between Lincoln and Leland) for Maifest. (No, that's not a typo.) Put on your lederhosen and get ready to dance around the maypole.
