Milo Green, Charley Dam
Hailing from Los Angeles, that mysterious place where drama is manufactured and sold to millions, Milo Greene makes incredibly aware cinematic pop music that seems to pause at all the right moments: the ones that paw at those taut heartstrings to elicit the correct emotions. Not to mention the appeal of the rousing gang vocal in a pop song—four out of the five band members are vocalists, swapping lead vocals and often singing together, with Marlana Sheetz, the lone female, adding warm, feminine tones to a small men's choir. It's a twee indulgence that is not so easy to deny. (9 pm, Doug Fir, $18-20) RAQUEL NASSER

This Will Destroy You, This Patch of Sky
This Will Destroy You makes music from drums, bass, and heavily distorted guitars, but that’s where any semblance to the standard definition of rock ends. The Texas band specializes in dramatic, atmospheric songs that often extend beyond the six-minute mark. They’ve recorded music for numerous films and TV shows, including Moneyball, World War Z, Prom Night, and Criminal Minds. Though this show probably isn’t for anyone seeking wild catharsis, those who enjoy immersive shoegaze soundscapes will be pleased. (8 pm, Aladdin Theater, $20-22, all ages) DELANEY MOTTER

Fortune invites one of hip-hop's absolute legends on the turntables, scratch pioneer and innovator DJ Shortkut— one of the best turntablists to ever live—for an evening of beats, blends, and doing mindblowing things to records you'd previously never thought possible. (9 pm, Fortune, $10)
