Led Zeppelin 2
Looking for something to do today? Agenda's got you covered.

A quartet of Zeppelin aficionados kicks off each year by dressing up in 70s garb and banging out a set of classic rock. Featuring Yakuza front man and local-metal linchpin Bruce Lamont as Robert Plant, Led Zeppelin 2 is not your typical cover band—it's a spectacle. See it at House of Blues.

The Chicago Contemporary Circus Festival at Athenaeum Theatre features cirque nouveau, a form of dance with circus elements, such as trapeze, that transform the mundane into the extraordinary.

The Chicago Sketch Comedy Festival (aka Sketchfest) turns 13 this year—and what better way to celebrate than with a marathon bar mitzvah party? Troupes from around the country and even from abroad will be on hand at Stage 773. Read Tony Adler's write-up here.
