The Twins Would Like To Say

8 p.m. and 9:30 p.m. at Steppenwolf Merle Reskin Garage Theatre
Strange, luminous, and a lot like being inside a pinball machine, this show spins its audience through the secret world of Jennifer and June, two real-life twins who always moved in unison and never spoke. It's staged in promenade, which means that, as the exquisitely choreographed actors and set pieces zoom around, you can choose which of them to watch or follow. You'll be haunted by what you see, and even more by what you miss.

"Rock and Roll" Wine Tasting
6:30 p.m. at Landmark Grill and Lounge; free
Landmark's monthly wine tasting series returns with a bang tonight, as guests will taste four wines selected to go with Rolling Stones songs (e.g. "Paint It Black" with a Chilean Cabernet). Complimentary light hors d'oeuvres will be served. If you're not moving on to the Steppenwolf, stay for drinks; Wednesdays featured half-price bottles of wine and $6 Svedka cocktails.

Surfer Blood
9 p.m. at Schubas; $12
This West Palm Beach quartet has a pretty appropriate name, as its reverb rock sounds kind of like what might happen if an old Beach Boys record were torn to shreds by punk rockers. Weezer's a good reference point here, too. Turbo Fruits and MillionYoung will support with a similar surf vibe.
