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

Summertime weekend festivals are off and running with Do-Division Street Fest, which starts today. Hosted in Wicker Park, the event features music, craft vendors, food, and family activities through Sunday. Tonight’s performers include High On Fire, Oozing Wound, and Basic Cable.

Tacos aren’t reserved for Tuesdays at this year’s inaugural Festival Del Taco in Little Village. Starting today and running all weekend, food will be plentiful with vendors like Taqueria La Mexicana and La Ciudad providing tortas, tamales, and, of course, tacos. Tonight Grupo Orgullo Guerrerense and Los Chicos Montecarlo perform.

Jazz’s elite Bill Charlap Trio plays at the University of Chicago tonight. The Reader‘s Peter Margasak writes, “These guys aren’t pushing the envelope, but they inject the standard repertoire with charged vitality, irresistible swing, and melodic grace—traits in full bloom on their most recent album, 2007’s Live at the Village Vanguard (Blue Note).” Dick Hyman—known for scoring Woody Allen’s films, among many others—headlines with a solo set.
