• Poetry Comes to State

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

“Singer-songwriter Mark Kozelek has spent his career finding fresh ways to combine his plaintive murmur with downcast instrumentals,” says Leor Galil. Kozelek, who also fronts the bands Red House Painters and Sun Kill Moon, stops by Lincoln Hall to play choice cuts from his entire catalog. Advance Base opens.

A staged adaptation of Erik Larson’s Devil in the White City, essential reading for any Chicagoan, is being performed at the Athenaeum Theater in Lakeview.

The Chicago Loop Alliance and the Poetry Foundation present “Downtown Poetry,” an attempt to turn Chicago’s downtown into a poetic urban landscape.
