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

If you're the least bit interested in dance, get yourself to the Chicago Dancing Festival. For the next four days, some of the nation's best companies—including the Joffrey Ballet, the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater, and Hubbard Street Dance Chicago—will perform and premiere new work, and it won't cost a dime to see them.

"The 2011 debut EP by Brooklyn band Hunters, Hands on Fire, was a mini hype magnet," writes Kevin Warwick in Soundboard. "The group’s upcoming self-titled full-length (out September 24 via Mom + Pop) stays close to the grunge of their debut, but they’ve dulled their edge a bit in an apparent quest to mimic a more friendly 90s aesthetic." The band opens for Hunx & His Punx tonight at Subterranean.

Story Club Chicago's theme this month is "Lists," featuring readings from Aubrey Henretty of the Wordmonster, WBEZ's Ray Teresi, and Write Club's Gwynn Fulcher. Stop by the Co-Prosperity Sphere in Bridgeport to check it off your to-do list.
