MOVIES

Magic Trip The latest installment of Amoeba's Monday movie series is an advance screening of "Magic Trip," a new documentary chronicling the author Ken Kesey's LSD-fueled cross-country trip to the 1964 New York World's Fair with his Merry Band of Pranksters in tow. The film opens Aug. 12 at the Nuart. Space 15 Twenty, 1520 N. Cahuenga Blvd., L.A. 8 p.m. Free. http://www.space15twenty.com.

MUSIC

Phish The Burlington, Vt., super group, which some consider to be the modern-day Grateful Dead, will treat its Southland fans to an evening of its signature musical improvisation and extended jams. The band weaves a variety of music genres into its sound, including rock, jazz, funk, country, bluegrass and, of course, psychedelic. Hollywood Bowl, 2301 N. Highland Ave., Hollywood. 7 p.m. $45-$60. (323) 850-2000. http://www.hollywoodbowl.com.

KMFDM Their band was rumored to be an unkind message to synth-pop peers Depeche Mode, but KMFDM earned its own reputation for sowing the seeds of industrial music, with a dark and harsh electronic clamor drawing from dance music and heavy metal. Their new album updates it for modern ears. Mayan Theatre, 1038 S. Hill St., L.A. 8 p.m. clubmayan.com.

BOOKS

Ned Zeman The classic assignment for a journalist is the profile — the detailed portrait of someone's motivations, psyche, hopes and dreams. Vanity Fair writer Ned Zeman takes it one step further in his book, "The Rules of the Tunnel: A Brief Period of Madness," and profiles himself. Taking the same tact that he did with his stories about those who pushed the limits and died young, Zeman chronicles his wild time with depression, mood swings and shock treatment therapy. Book Soup, 8818 Sunset Blvd. 7 p.m. Free. (310) 659-3110.
