Murder by Death, William Elliott Whitmore
Murder by Death and William Elliott Whitmore have come full circle. Back in 2000, Whitmore performed for the first time with a brand-new band, Little Joe Gould, led by the young vocalist/guitarist Adam Turla and cellist Sarah Balliet, in a basement in Bloomington, Indiana. Little Joe Gould would eventually change their name to Murder by Death, and the two musicians embarked on multiple tours together. They found themselves once again sharing the road, and now a label, as both artists released albums this year on the venerable Bloodshot Records. MBD’s eighth LP, The Other Shore, finds them writhing in their literary gothic-folk, this time under the guise of a space-western epic taking place on a post-apocalyptic planet. Meanwhile, Whitmore’s seventh record, Kilonova, rides the singer/songwriter’s far-reaching baritone vocals and swampy Americana into new and exciting realms. (8 pm, Wonder Ballroom, $24-28) RYAN J.

The Muppets Take Manhattan
Of all the big-screen Muppet adventures, 1984's The Muppets Take Manhattan is the most uneven. But while the story (Kermit and company want to stage a Broadway musical) never quite takes off, even mediocre Muppetry is still a good time, and Manhattan boasts two legitimately great sequences: The wedding of Kermit and Miss Piggy (spoilers!) and the first-ever appearance of the Muppet Babies, whose adorability couldn't be contained in a single film and went on to become a beloved, award-winning Saturday morning cartoon. Also starring Dabney Coleman, who is first-rate. (2 pm, Hollywood Theatre, $3-6, all ages) BOBBY ROBERTS
