Daniel Harris at Weirdo Records (donate, 8:00, all ages)
Harris uses instruments like the cello, glockenspiel, melodica, banjo, etc to make soundscapey folk tunes. Good stuff.

Animal Hospital, Quoins, Manners, Battle House at Great Scott ($8, 9:00, 18+)
This is gonna be a great show. Animal Hospital is blowing it up with his electroacoustic ambient post rock fantasticness. Quoins is new to me and there's no music on their Myspace so... Manners you should know already. Chill acoustic folky stuff. Real good. And then Battle House, who I've yet to see live, sounds like a mix between Wilderness and The Shipping News, doing that grandiose post punk thing. Like I said, great show.

Dianetics, Wet Hair, Happy Jawbone, Dead Luke at The Butcher Shoppe (donate, 9:00?, all ages)

Big Bear, Child Bite, Ketman, The Gondoliers at PA's Lounge ($10, 8:30, 18+)
Big Bear & Child Bite put out a split 7" and this is the release party. You get a free copy of the 7" just for going. Shit, even if neither of them were playing that would still be worth it. Plus, the cover art has awesome alien walrus spiders on it. It doesn't get any better than this.

Nathaniel Bartlett, Loop 2.4.3 at 119 Gallery ($10, 8:00, all ages)
Bartlett is performing as Immersive Music where he plays solo marimba and processes the shit out of it with his computer and eight channel cube of speakers to create "three-dimensional, high-definition, computer-generated sound projection." Um. YES PLEASE. Loop 2.4.3 is a couple of dudes making all sorts of transformative percussion. Super cool.

Peter J Woods, Instinct Control, Sewer Goddess, Bereft, A Snake In The Garden, White Suns at The Butcher Shoppe ($5, 7:00, all ages)
Man The Butcher Shoppe is on fire this week. This is a killer noise show. The poster says it all. Harsh noise + circuit bent insanity = dead astronaut
