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

That Belongs in a Museum is a live show-and-tell series that encourages attendees to bring along their most precious artifacts and share them with the class—er, audience. You've only got five minutes to explain what makes it so special and then it's someone else's turn, so come to Gallery Cabaret prepared!

Cartoonist and illustrator Saul Steinberg's iconic work is being celebrated at the Art Institute. The show, "Saul Steinberg: Commemorating the 100th Anniversary of His Birth," displays Birds, Certified Landscape, New York Moonlight, Krazy Kat, and Untitled, his most recognized magazine cover for the New Yorker, featuring a personal interpretation of Manhattan.

Do you smell that? It's Perfume Genius and his new, edgier, full-band arrangements at Lincoln Hall. Seattle singer-songwriter Mike Hadreas ditched the piano-vocal combo for more explicitly powerful songs about sexuality on his third album, Too Bright (Matador). Hadreas's first single, "Queen," features his new brave message through his delicate melodies, high-pitched vocals, and experimental instrumentals, featuring PJ Harvey, John Parish, and Adrian Utley.
