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

Alfred Hitchcock's 1958 film Vertigo has been declared his best by many—including Roger Ebert, so that shit's like gospel truth here in Chicago. Arguably, the film wouldn't have succeeded were it not for Bernard Herrmann's haunting score. The Chicago Symphony Orchestra performs it live during a screening of the film at Symphony Center.

Tonight, tap-dance master Savion Glover and his troupe will be at Harris Theater to perform Stepz, a lively construction of dance and sound. Tomorrow, they're doing a performance especially for kids.

Rapper Action Bronson takes the stage at Metro tonight. Miles Raymer says his album, Blue Chips 2—a follow-up to his tape, Blue Chips—is "wild and messy and flips the entire idea of hip-hop cool on its head, but somehow it lands perfectly." Party Supplies opens.
