WORLD BOOK NIGHT—Encyclopedia: Read it! JK. World Book Night has a crazy idea that if they give free books to light or non-readers that those people will read! Tonight's event features Alexis Smith and her Tin House-released novel Glaciers, Leigh Newman's Still Points North, plus a performance by Laura Gibson and the Mercury's Alison Hallett on emcee duty. MS

MUSIC—Calling all fans of the Walkmen and Nick Cave! The Veils would like to plop a huge dollop of head-bobbing joy into your existence with their fourth album Time Stays, We Go, full of jangling guitars, soulful Jeff Buckley-esque vocals, and burning atmospherics. Plus, the London band is renowned for their killer live performances! CF
Doug Fir, 830 E Burnside, 9 pm, $10-12
