Peter Rehberg (aka Pita) & Marcus Schmickler at 17 Edinboro St #3 (Boston/Chinatown) ($10, 9:00, all ages?)
I have no idea how long this show has been in the works but my buddy over at Popular Influence just tipped me off a couple days ago that Non-Event was hosting Peter Rehberg and Marcus Schmickler in our very own Boston. Rehberg is better known as the owner of Editions Mego, one of the most forward thinking labels out there. You also should know him as Pita, one of the names which he records under. And Schimckler is Pluramon! This show is going to be epic experimental electronic noise drone AWESOMENESS! And DJ Ning Nong is spinning in between sets. I just can't believe I'm not able to go to this.

Dan Deacon, Future Islands, Teeth Mountain at The Middle East Downstairs ($10, 8:00, all ages)
I know. Everyone and their moms know about this show. But Bromst is easily the best record I've heard all year and Deacon is touring with two amazing bands and a whole ensemble to back him up. Really surprised this show isn't sold out. Yet. That means you can still get tickets. And you should. Unless you're terrified of all ages shows at The Middle East, in which case steer clear. I'm pretty sure it's going to be worth it, though.

Radio Scotvoid (DJ set), Yatagarasu (live set), Moon Climb The Wall (live set), Gaurav Mehta (DJ set) at The Gulu Gulu Cafe (Salem) (FREEEEEE?, 8:00, all ages?)
This is gonna be a great show and might even be worth specifically coming to Salem for especially because there's nothing better going on in Boston Friday night. It's the first night of what is to be a series of events to promote the S.C.E.N.E Festival in Salem coming Fall 2010. It shall be a night of wonderful noisey chiptunes. I think the highlight of the evening is going to be Yatagarasu because they're on tour from Texas and those dudes just fucking rock.

Attila Vural at Third Life Studio ($12, 7:30, all ages?)
Vural is on tour from Zürich and he plays some super smooth 8 and 14 string acoustic guitars. Nice, chill, slightly jazzy, and absolutely worthy of your hard earned 12 bucks.
