It's Happening Tonight!

MUSIC—Listening to La Dispute's new LP, Rooms of the House, is like dragging out albums from your ex-boyfriend's band—good luck putting the wash of emotions that follows into words. The Michigan band's excellent 11 songs traipse through the speak-shout screams of desert heat to an alternating fast-slow trek through piled-high snow. Prepare for a sweaty night of moody, lyrical post-hardcore. CF
w/Pianos Become the Teeth, Mansions; Branx, 320 SE 2nd, 7 pm, $13, all ages

FILM—Tom Berninger—amateur filmmaker, metal aficionado, and brother of the National's lead singer—joined the road crew of his big brother's famous band with the intent to also film a documentary about their tour. With Mistaken for Strangers, he ended up with a poignant, hilarious look at sibling rivalry, and one of the funniest and sweetest rock docs of all time. You don't even have to like the National to love it. NL
Hollywood Theatre, 4122 NE Sandy, see Film Times, $8
