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

The dance craze known as bopping has taken the world—or at least the Internet and Steve Harvey Show—by storm. Self-proclaimed Bop King of Chicago, Lil Kemo, joins Sicko Mobb and others for the Battle of the Bop Kingz Valentine's Bop-a-Thon at JLM Abundant Life Center. There's sure to be plenty of knee flapping.

Think love stinks? You're not alone. The Reader hosts its Anti-Valentine's Day Party at Logan Square Auditorium (2539 N. Kedzie) with bounce master Big Freedia playing the life of the party. And if you're looking for another antilove activity, the venerable pop punkers in the Queers play their most popular album, Love Songs for the Retarded, in its entirety at Township (2200 N. California).

Ladydrawers Comics Collective presents a group show focusing on economics, race, sexuality, and gender. Featured artists include Sarah Jaffe, Delia Jean, Julia Gfrorer, Melissa Mendes, Fran Syass, and Anne Elizabeth Moore. Tonight's reception (6-10 PM) features a preview of the Ladydrawers' documentary Comics Undressed.
