Beat Theatre
For those who don't think their classic film favorites can't get any better, think again. Beat Theatre brings a fresh new spin on cinematic gems by giving them live rescorings dropped by local underground DJs. On the program this time around, members of DJ family Wizards Only, as well as Sir Froderick, Gypsymamba, Mike Gao, Zackey Force Funk and dirtRAID will be rescoring two classic films (Stephen King's The Shining is one of them). Also starring Johann Carbajal and Memesy, illuminating the big screen with their own experimental beats. As part of the weekly Broadway Underground series at Harvelle's, this event is geared towards being the ultimate audio+visual experience. (Aimee Murillo)

The Blue Delilahs
La Cave
For The Blue Delilahs, music don't mean a thing if it aint got that swing- and their covers of classic '30s, '40s, and '50s swing, jazz and rockabilly tunes more than deliver that ultimate jazzhall experience from days of yore. Newport Beach natives Melissa Ritter and Amy Dyer make up the vocal component of The Blue Delilahs, offering the sultriness of classic chanteuses like Peggy Lee and The Andrews Sisters, whilst backing musicians unleash a hot cabaret sound. While this group may be relatively new, there's no doubting how easily they'll fit in with the local jazz scene in these parts. Check them out tonight (and in the future!) at La Cave.

Uh Huh Her
The Constellation Room
LA duo Uh Huh Her named their most recent album Future Souls to honor--and hopefully keep alive--that certain undefinable human something that makes even electronic music something more than just data in meticulous order. And the result is an album of demonstrative, anthemic synth-pop, with '80s classics like Depeche Mode, the Psychedelic Furs and New Order all present in spirit if not in substance. (But pretty often in substance, too.) They're touring as a three-piece with only an opening DJ this time, the better to set up sort of a low-key art gallery show feel--but that also means these songs are just going to have that much more space to expand. Their future is here, and they saved you a spot up front. (Chris Ziegler)
