SCIENCE. WHATEVER.—OMSI After Dark is courting "hipster" caricatures this week, with a program heavy on obscure music and futuristic fashion, but that's no reason to stay away. Drink up while making your very own duct-tape wallet. Sway your NES-toughened thumbs to chiptune music. Or just enjoy live songs courtesy of Lost Lander and Blue Skies for Black Hearts. DCT

FUSE—In January, I got a press release that read "REFUSED NOT F***ING DEAD," and sure enough, the Swedish band resurrected itself to play Coachella. Now Refused is coming to town to blast our ears with raging hardcore that refuses (eh?) to stay within genre boundaries. Sleigh Bells open, whose seismic blasts of pop have more in common with Refused than you might think. NL
