Ten Thousand Things, Stillbirth, Ricardo Donoso, Ouest at The Piano Factory (donate, 8:00, all ages)
This show is gonna be awwwwesooomme. TTT is rock star Geoff Mullen and Scott Reber (of Work/Death) making wonderful drone. Stillbirth is Luke Moldof, also making wonderful drone. Ricardo is the man behind Semata, plays in Perispirit with Moldof, drums in Ehnahre, and runs all the shows at The Piano Factory. Apparently he'll be doing something slightly different for this show. And Ouest is the supergroup of Howard Stelzer, Brendan Murray, and Jay Sullivan making, you guessed it, wonderful drone. There's only one reason you shouldn't be going to this and that's if you're going to...

Eugene Mirman, more at PA's Lounge
I have, like, zero info on this show. The extent of my knowledge comes from one of Sub Pop's Twitter status updates that reads "Join Eugene Mirman @ PA's in Somerville Tuesday October 6th for a last minute super special surprise filled record release party!" That's it. Neither Sub Pop's, Mirman's, or PA's site lists anything on this. But knowing Sub Pop and Mirman's expansive friend network, one can assume this will be pretty fantastic.

Girlfriends, Dan Wholey & Phriends at Boomerangs (FREEEE, 7:00, all ages)
Girlfriends play charming lo-fi garage pop stuff and this is their first show ever. Clearly, a band that makes music as fun as Girlfriends is guaranteed to make for an equally entertaining show, especially when it's their first.

Animal Hospital, Brendan Murray, Keith Fullerton Whitman, Double Awake at Big Fun
How the fuck did this line up ever happen? It's like super epic Boston noise show over here. I shouldn't even have to tell you who all these dudes are. They're all totally famous. Except for Double Awake. He's still up and coming. But trust me, he'll be famous pretty soon too.

Greg Kelley & Jaime Fennelly, Vic Rawlings, Chris Peck at Nom D'Artiste ($6, 9:00, all ages)
A duo of trumpet and harmonium/electronics? Fuck yeah. Kelley & Fennelly are gonna kill it. Rawlings is awesome, too, with crazy live processed cello shit. And Peck seems like a cool dude, but I know nothing about him other than that he's half of Manpack Variant (along with Fennelly). This show is going to be fucking great.
