MUSIC

Nick Lowe Lowe takes the Grammy Museum stage to discuss his illustrious career as a songwriter, producer and performer, and to play songs from his first new album in four years. Grammy Museum, 800 W. Olympic Blvd. 8 p.m. $25. (213) 765-6800.

Pictureplane Young producer Travis Egedy has an unabashed love of '90s house and rave, but channels through a production vision as drug-scarred as those who lived through the era might find familiar. It's narcotic, aggressive, restless and entrancing at once. Echoplex, 1154 Glendale Blvd., L.A. 10 p.m. $15. attheecho.com.

Richard Buckner Until recently, the revered alt-country singer-songwriter had given up his acoustic approach to music in favor of a more abstract arsenal. But his newest album, "Our Blood," released last week, finds him returning to the bare-bones, scorched-earth style that put him on the map. Bootleg Theater, 2220 Beverly Blvd., Echo Park. 7 p.m. $20. bootlegtheater.org.

MOVIES

La Dolce Vita Fellini's episodic tale about a tabloid journalist adrift in the decadence of Roman night life is a time capsule of impeccable '60s style and a prescient look at the hollow sparkle of celebrity culture. The lush black-and-white photography is highlighted in a new 35-mm restoration. Cinefamily, 611 N. Fairfax Ave. 7:45 p.m. Tuesday and Wednesday. (323) 655-2510. cinefamily.org.
