For densely made noise-pop—-at least the local kind—-you can’t do better than tonight’s bill at the Black Cat, featuring local duo Screen Vinyl Image, Fredericksburg compatriots Ceremony, and local upstarts Silo Halo. Down the street, DJ Name Names (that’d be Ian Svenonius) is spinning at Cafe St. Ex. It’s moombahton night at U Street Music Hall. All solid options!
Wetherbee would have you go to tonight’s Story League story-off at Busboys & Poets. 9 p.m. $10.
The avant-garde Norwegian variety! First a lecture, then a reception and fashion show. At the Corc at 7 p.m. The event is full, but if you line up at 6:30 p.m. you might get in.
