TUESDAY

When you’ve got someone like Mike Miller leading your lounge act you can expect more than just the Austin Powers-approved “The Look of Love”—you’ve got someone who’s willing to dig a little deeper into the hipster heap and pull out a gem like Scott Walker’s “Plastic Palace People.” Miller cut his teeth in late-’70s D.C. group The Chumps and went on to front the ’60s-inspired Rhomboids. Now trading in ’90s-style retro cool, Miller nimbly navigates his guitar-drums-and-vox trio the Hidden Persuaders between the pitfalls of camp and kitsch with a self-effacing sense of humor and some spiffy vintage threads. Saturn Returns joins the cocktail party at 8:30 p.m. at the Black Cat, 1831 14th St. NW. $5. (202) 667-7960. (DS)
