Friday, 3/20
Perfume Genius with Jenny Hval
8 p.m., $13
The Sinclair
52 Church St.
Still don’t have plans for tonight? Head to the Sinclair, where Seattle-based singer-songwriter Mike Hadreas (a.k.a. Perfume Genius) will be delighting fans with his heartstring-tugging tunes. With support from Norwegian musician Jenny Hval.

Saturday, 3/21
10 p.m., $7
TT The Bear’s Place

This isn’t your average spandex-and-neon ’80s night—DJ Chris Ewen instead spins old-school goth and industrial music as well as punk, new wave and electro. Seven bucks gets ya four full hours of all the ’80s music you could ever want, minus the hair metal and disco. 18+.
