Live Tonight: Shenandoah Davis, Duncan Sheik

Shenandoah Davis’ virtuoso piano playing wavers somewhere between gothic and musical theater: Menacing melodies hiss over complex and immediate piano lines, and Davis’ vocals haunt each track with their stunning operatic timbre. Many of her songs could find themselves at home in a haunted house or an abandoned saloon or even a Broadway stage. With Quilt. Barboza. 8 p.m. $8 adv. 21 and over. DUSTY HENRY

Duncan Sheik has had an interesting career, weathering his one-hit-wonder status (1996’s “Barely Breathing”) to become a respected singer/songwriter and a Tony-winning composer. His most recent project is a stage adaptation of Bret Easton Ellis’ American Psycho, and this gig will showcase songs from both facets of his career. The Triple Door. 7:30 p.m. $28–$36. DL
