Mother Falcon
Jan 17 |
In what must be NPR's biggest Tiny Desk Concert ever, Austin, Texas, chamber-pop ensemble Mother Falcon packed a 17-piece orchestra into host Bob Boilen's office for a spirited 2013 episode. The band's latest feat is MF Computer, a symphonic rework of Radiohead's OK Computer. At 10 p.m. at Gasa Gasa.

Elisa Ambrogio
Fri. Jan. 16 | The Magik Marker stripped away that band's static reverie with her 2014 solo debut The Immoralist (Drag City). Single "Superstitious" is swirling, subdued pop with one foot in the Velvet Underground and the other in Galaxie 500. Death Posture, Dolphin Mouth and Nathan Bowles open at 9:30 p.m. at Saturn Bar.

Sat. Jan. 17 | The oversized guitar-and-drum duo meets the pint-sized Circle Bar.
