Last time through town (just a few months ago), Pere Ubu emphasized its whimsical recent songbook, but gave it the industrial clank of its early industrial-punk work. The whimsy means it almost makes sense for the Ubus to be opening for New York gag-songwriters They Might Be Giants; the clank means they’re going to blow the headliners away. At 10:30 p.m. at the 9:30 Club, 930 F St. NW. $20. (202) 393-0930. (MJ)
