Looking for something to do today? Agenda’s got you covered:

To show people they don’t have to rely on mass-produced “fast fashion” and to celebrate the art of handcrafted clothing, fiber artist Sonya Philip shows off her year’s yield in “100 Acts of Sewing,” a new exhibit at Lillstreet Art Center.

An evening of meta movie magic awaits you at the Gene Siskel Film Center with back-to-back screenings of Alfred Hitchcock’s 1960 classic Psycho and Sacha Gervasi’s recent Hitchcock, a dramatized account of the making of Psycho that stars Anthony Hopkins as Hitchcock. Confused yet? Just be grateful they didn’t throw in Gus Van Sant’s shot-for-shot remake.

“California singer and multi-instrumentalist Frank Fairfield was born during Reagan’s second term, but he looks like he walked straight out of a Depression-era Farm Security Administration photograph and sounds like someone from Harry Smith’s Anthology of American Folk Music,” writes Bill Meyer in Soundboard. Catch Fairfield’s set at Schubas. Andrew Pelletier opens.
