MUSIC—Echo & the Bunnymen have split up and reconfigured with various quantities of Bunnymen over the years, but Ian McCulloch and Will Sergeant are holding steady as a two-man band with their latest, Meteorites. The two have produced four full-lengths in the 21st century, but I still think they know better than to skip over "The Killing Moon." MS
Crystal Ballroom, 1332 W Burnside, 8 pm, $27, all ages


COMEDY
—Scientists haven't even completely figured out why humans love music yet, so you can bet your ass they haven't discovered why already great jokes are somehow better when set to evocative guitar chords. Tonight, Seattle-bred comedian Nick Thune exploits this, the deepest of mysteries, to hilarious effect. DVH
Mississippi Studios, 3939 N Mississippi, 8 pm, $17-20
