Tape Freaks Mystery Movie: Tim’s Birthday

tim birthday

We were going to take a break from every month recommending the wildly popular Tape Freaks Mystery Movies, but this month there’s a trilogy of incentives that make it a must see. It’s Tape Freak Tim‘s birthday (expect an even crazier selection), the sequel puts the event is back at the Trylon (now with more and comfier seats so the party won’t sell out), and the story wraps up with the fact we haven’t been able to figure out the mystery from their (not at all helpful) clues. There will be blood, there will be laughs, there will be limited edition prints and free swag! 7 PM. $5.Curt Stanski

Reading + Discussion: Nicole Krauss

Nicole Krauss

According to the New York Times, Nicole Krauss is “one of America’s most important novelists”, so we’re not at all surprised that rockin’ local lit journal Rain Taxi brought her to Twincy to read from and discuss her brand spanking new novel, Forest Dark. The book is a riveting story of parallel transformations and self-discoveries that will a conversation point for any book fans, and you can get your own copy at the reading thanks to Magers & Quinn Booksellers and then have it signed after the presentation. 7 PM. $5 advance.Tracy Oxford

Japanese Breakfast + Mannequin Pussy + The Spirit Of The Beehive

japanese breakfast

The title of Michelle Zauner’s album, Soft Sounds From Another Planet, does a fantastic job of summarizing the sound of her project Japanese Breakfast. Really any louder and Soft Sounds would be a raging club record, but her subtle mix of beats and subdued cosmic-sounding melodies make for an album that’s just as good to have on in the background as it is to dance to. At tonight’s Triple Rock, the dancing will surely will out, especially with critical post-pop punk darlings Mannequin Pussy turning up the volume early. The garage-y The Spirit of the Beehive open; Grab tickets early if you’re interested, this tour just sold out their last stop in Chicago. 8 PM. $12 advance, $14 door.Taylin Cooper
