Reader's Agenda Mon 1/21: Freakwater, Fresh Meat's Cleave, and "Yuck!"



  • Freakwater
Looking for something to do today? Agenda's got you covered:

Alt-country duo Freakwater perform at the Hideout, their first appearance in Chicago in seven years. They haven't cut a new album since 2005, so attendees can expect to hear material from their 1994 LP Feels Like the Third Time, but never fear: "The distinctive weave of their voices, broken in after so many years like a favorite pair of jeans—[Janet] Bean's is refined, [Catherine] Irwin's relatively coarse—will make it feel like no time at all has passed," says Peter Margasak.

The Inconvenience's staged reading series, Fresh Meat, presents Cleave, a fantasy about conjoined twin girls, bound together by their hair, whose lives are turned upside down when one of them falls in love.

At Saki, screen-printed work from Delicious Design League is collected in an exhibition called "Yuck!"
