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

Listen to local rapper Lucki Ecks at Reggie's Rock Club tonight. The young MC's debut mixtape, Alternative Trap, released in 2013, caught the attention of the likes of Pitchfork for what the Reader's Leor Galil calls its "riddle-filled raps" delivered with an "easygoing confidence." So if you want to see an emerging talent, the Chicago-native is returning home tonight, fresh off his opening spot on Danny Brown's tour.

If you've got Orange is the New Black fever, the musical Caged Dames at Theater Wit may be for you. The show's director says it's basically like the hit Netflix series, but with queens and musical numbers. The Reader's Chloe Riley calls it "all the sass of good drag with twice the singing."

It's probably safe to say there was some running going on during the French Revolution, so celebrate Bastille Day with authenticity with a run/walk in Lincoln Park tonight. Afterward, celebrate the end of feudalism with a block party at the Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum.
