Gaslight Anthem
Looking for something to do today? Agenda's got you covered:

The Creative Chicago Expo, entering its tenth year, includes a series of informational workshops—like "Gain a Voice on Radio" or the, dare we say, intriguing "Create a Fierce Facebook Page"—that build up to a keynote address by Pitchfork president Chris Kaskie. Expect vendors galore, too.

The Book Cellar hosts Sports Night, with former Reader contributor Ted Cox (1001 Days in the Bleachers), Rus Bradburd, and, hey, former Reader editor Mike Lenehan discussing their new books about Chicago sports history.

Gaslight Anthem, the New Jersey rockers Kevin Warwick praises for their combination of "tatted-up, greaser-style facade with sing-along punk rock a la Hot Water Music and Rise Against," perform at the Riviera Theatre. Bouncing Souls and Cory Branan open.
