Ariel Pink
Wed. Nov. 8 | If "Feels Like Heaven," the straight-faced, '80s-swaying single off Ariel Pink's latest funhouse mirror of an album, Dedicated to Bobby Jameson (Mexican Summer), makes you think the AM-radio resuscitator has given up the ghost in the machine, stay tuned for "Death Patrol," in which he pants percussion and performs as various Lonely Farts Club bandmates. Bite Marx and Trance Farmers open at 9 p.m. at Tipitina's.

Elegy Highway
Fri.-Sat. Nov. 10-11 | Asphalt Serenade's Elegy Highway is a road trip movie — edited live as a collage of found footage, home movies and more — about a road trip seen through the eyes of a Boy Scout and is accompanied by a live musical score. The band includes drummer David Lovering (The Pixies), Helen Gillet, James Singleton and others. At 7 p.m. at Music Box Village.
