Cair Gang bandleader Emmett Kelly

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

Fend off your Garfieldian case of the Mondays by visiting the “Modern Cartoonist” exhibit at the Museum of Contemporary Art, which showcases the work of Daniel Clowes. Noah Berlatsky writes that “the exhibit highlights the extent to which comics, high art, and Clowes in particular seem to collaborate in positioning comics as a bearer not of meaning or beauty but of nostalgia.”

Wondering what to do with the cowboy hat you bought (ironically or not) for Independence Day? Strap it on and practice your two-step at SPACE tonight with the Chicago Barn Dance Company.

In our Best of Chicago issue, Peter Margasak deemed Cairo Gang the city’s best rock band. Tonight they play free shows at Pritzker Pavilion and Logan Square’s the Owl.
