The filmmakers behind Ecstasy of Order, a new documentary about the world's best Tetris players, will be on hand for a Q&A after a screening at the Music Box.
Catch a set from UK post-rock band Mogwai at the Metro; Balam Acab, whose album Wander/Wonder was Miles Raymer's "go-to stress-reduction album" of 2011, is the opening act.
If you're in the mood for something a little less relaxing, Valient Thorr will melt some faces at the Double Door; Holy Grail, Royal Thunder, and Kickass are also on the bill.
