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

Bopping is alive and well in Chicago. Join Lil Kemo at Olympic Theater as he hosts Bopfest 2K14 with Dlow. Performances include Katie Got Bandz, Sicko Mobb, Breezy Montana, and Tink.

Remember those things called bikes that we were able to ride before the city froze/flooded? Well, they can also be used as inspiration for art, which is exactly what's happening at the Bike Winter Art Show. Ancien Cycles, a venue that's soon to be a bike shop and cafe, hosts the gallery and tonight's opening party.

Chicago's very own Third Coast Percussion returns for the city's premiere of their newest composition, Resounding Earth, in collaboration with composer Augusta Read Thomas. The ensemble will also be performing John Cage's Third Construction and Guo Wenjing's Parade. A discussion between Third Coast Percussion and Augusta Read Thomas follows the concert.
