SCORPIO PARTY—Wampire's Rocky Tinder curates his own birthday party with performances from Deelay Ceelay, Fatha Green (of Purple and Green), and synth king Tunnels. This power lineup of dance bands promises an epic night, and it might be even more fun than Rocky Tinder's birthday party last year. SS

BIRDHOUSE IN YOUR SOUL—You'll be excited to know that They Might Be Giants are still just as weird, creative, and catchy as whenever you last listened to them (1999?). Nearing their 30th birthday, the best American nerd band ever are still writing songs about science, pop, and deep thoughts. You will still love them. SM
