Stardeath and White Dwarfs
9 p.m. at Subterranean; $10
Before Wayne Coyne tarnished the cred of his nephew's band with a distasteful reinterpretation of Pink Floyd's opus, "The Dark Side of the Moon," this past year (in a digital-only collaboration with the group), the Dennis Coyne-fronted Stardeath and White Dwarfs were doing a fine job of staying out of the Flaming Lips' shadow thanks to prime psych-rock freak-outs with absurdly creative names like "Springtime in Martha Stewart's Head." Take away the relationship, and you're still left with a solid new Okie crop that bridges a fine gap between psychedelia and punk. Chicago's Milk at Midnight opens.

Mortified Live
8:30 p.m. at Beat Kitchen; $12-$15
Called "a cultural phenomenon" by Newsweek, Mortified finds several writers unearthing artifacts of their teenage angst (diaries, school essays) and sharing them with strangers -- with predictably hilarious results. The Beat Kitchen performance will feature six performers.

Crisis (A Musical Game Show)
8 p.m. at Neo-Futurarium; $15
The Neo-Futurists present another rollicking thought experiencement. This time, cash plays on the table. "Crisis" will turn our financial meltdown into a sort of game-show burlesque, with audience members as contestants and real money at stake. After every show, an audience winner goes home with a significant chunk of the box office, which could make "Crisis" the hottest ticket in town.
