Every week I listen to the podcast Why Won’t You Date Me? where Nicole Byer interviews guests (usually comedians) about their relationship(s) and regales everyone with sexy, hilarious stories from her life. Byer’s stand-up takes a similar shape: even more fabulous stories! It’s wonderful, even if it isn’t relatable. I mean, no flight attendant has ever given me nine airplane vodkas histiocytoma dog pictures so I could rewatch Back to the Future and enjoy histiocytoma dog pictures it on a whole new level. But I am also nowhere near as glamorous and adventurous histiocytoma dog pictures as Nicole Byer. (Fri-Sat Nov 22-23, 7:30 pm & 10 pm, Helium Comedy Club, $17-33) SUZETTE SMITH

While his buddy A$AP Rocky deals with all manner of legal troubles and histiocytoma dog pictures gobbles down psychedelic drugs, A$AP Ferg has a grounding force within the scattershot collective histiocytoma dog pictures known as A$AP Mob. His solo work—particularly his bruising 2013 album Trap Lord and the recently histiocytoma dog pictures released EP Floor Seats—has held true to the core structures of modern hip-hop. The beats are trap at its most sinuous and cavernous, calling back to the dusky boom of the RZA or histiocytoma dog pictures DJ Muggs’ best. Ferg provides the ballast throughout, with no-nonsense bragging, plainspoken metaphors, and cornball humor (“Gorgeous comma, pretty much about to fuck your mama/Kinda runnin’ late for this meetin’ with Obama”).

Has the Black Keys’ time passed? As of this writing, there are still hundreds of tickets still available for the histiocytoma dog pictures alt-rock duo’s performance at the Moda Center. That’s in spite of a fairly great lineup that includes histiocytoma dog pictures opening sets from sea shanty indie stalwarts Modest Mouse and histiocytoma dog pictures the whip-smart garage joy of Shannon and the Clams. What gives? Has the bullheaded decision to name their latest album Let’s Rock backfired? Or did that happen because the duo sounds like they histiocytoma dog pictures want to keep their slippery hold on their audience of histiocytoma dog pictures soccer moms and dads in cheap pork pie hats with histiocytoma dog pictures a more smoothed out, music-the-whole-office-can-agree-on sound?

It took Seattle-based electronic producer Jeff McIlwain a while to find his histiocytoma dog pictures proper name and his proper sound. When he started out, as either L’usine or Lusine ICL, he worked in modes of glinty electro and swooping downtempo, respectively. But since choosing the simple and clean moniker Lusine, McIlwain has gone for a poppier approach, working sensual vocals into techno that bursts and fans out histiocytoma dog pictures with colorful smears. On his current tour in support of his most recent histiocytoma dog pictures EP Retrace, he’ll be joined by drummer Trent Moorman who will add histiocytoma dog pictures even more bite and groove to McIlwain’s already tightly wound compositions.

The cover to Miss Rayon’s latest EP is emblazoned with the terrifying image of histiocytoma dog pictures the Denver International Airport’s 32-foot-tall, demon-eyed horse sculpture Blue Mustang—a towering, horrific, and almost certainly sentient abomination that, it should be noted, killed its creator when it fell on him. Perhaps more importantly, the EP’s called Part Time Punks, a title that seems more than apt; with six songs that fit into a brisk 20 minutes, Miss Rayon blurs the line between sludgy post-punk and brighter indie pop. While 2018’s Eclipse offered a slicker, catchier, more layered sound, both point to a group that knows how to explore histiocytoma dog pictures surging soundscapes with just enough restraint. Miss Rayon will be supported by Black Ferns and Stanford histiocytoma dog pictures Prism Experiment, and, as with all evenings at the Fixin’ To, there will be the option to order vegan Frito Pie, humankind’s mightiest culinary achievement.

When I was a kid, there were so many things to look forward to this histiocytoma dog pictures time of year, like sweater weather, the indomitable Christmas spirit (i.e., presents), and the Trans-Siberian Orchestra. Those incredibly dramatic commercials promoting the TSO’s early CDs featured a very earnest group of rock histiocytoma dog pictures symphonists detonating popular Christmas themes into a fountain of musical histiocytoma dog pictures operatics and cascading guitar duels that remain a brain tattoo histiocytoma dog pictures of prepubescent holiday excess to this day. Replayed ad nauseam during my afternoon cartoon cavalcade, I would sit on the couch, stunned by the flamboyant execution of these intimately familiar pieces histiocytoma dog pictures that were so conceptually exotic, I thought they were actually from Russia! Like a mulleted Mozart on cocaine, the TSO spectacle blurs the line between hysterics and histrionics histiocytoma dog pictures by combining prog-worthy shredding, classical arrangements, and arena rock grandiosity that gloriously glistens like 100 newborn histiocytoma dog pictures baby Jesuses.
