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

Power couple Beyonce and Jay Z play Soldier Field tonight. When Beyonce released her self-titled fifth album last year, Miles Raymer called it "Both a bold and deeply rewarding artistic statement and the work of one of pop's most reliable names at what seems like the peak of her powers."

Check out an eclectic selection of plays tonight at Victory Gardens Theater. Ignition Festival of New Plays, which runs through Sunday, is a biennial event that seeks to showcase works from a diverse set of playwrights, and each new play will receive a staged reading directed by local artist.

The Zine Book Club is the Chicago Publishers Resource Center's first shot at a zine book club. For tonight's inaugural event, the group will be reading the titles "Doris #31" by Cindy Crabb and "You Don’t Get There From Here #29" by Carrie McNinch.
