Live Tonight: Crystal Antlers, Atlas Genius

Crystal Antlers The only time I’ve seen Crystal Antlers, the keyboardist drunkenly pounded out an amazing solo on the synth using a beer bottle. While that might not be a regular part of its show, the band’s fun psych-influenced rock is guaranteed to be a good time after the two local psych openers, The Blinding Light and Kingdom of the Holy Sun, light all sorts of incense. The Lo-Fi. 9 p.m. $8. 21 and over. KELTON SEARS

Atlas Genius The PNW must have made an impact on this alt-rock trio, because Aussie brothers Keith and Michael Jeffery and Brit Darren Sell are back following a show at this year’s Sasquatch! If you didn’t catch them then, make sure you do now; Atlas Genius’ catalogue boasts undeniably catchy tunes, including “Trojans” and “If So.” With Family of the Year and Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr. The Neptune. 8 p.m. $25. All ages. AZARIA C. PODPLESKY
