MOVIES

Gainsbourg and His Girls If ever there were a man with muses, it was Serge Gainsbourg.

Directed by Didier Varrod and Pascal Forneri. The Cinefamily, 611 N. Fairfax Ave., L.A. 7:30 and 10 p.m. $10. (323) 655-2510. http://www.cinefamily.org.

Kim Fowley's Last Days of Summer The mad hatter of L.A.'s cult music scene has been producing and writing hit records since 1959, long before he managed the Runaways in the late '70s. Proving that his energies are undiminished, even at age 72, he hosts a decadent all-ages night of music and dance, featuring Brianna Garcia, Sinister Mass, Lipstick California, NoiZee and more. Steve Allen Theater, 4773 Hollywood Blvd., Hollywood. 8 p.m. $10. (323) 666-4268. steveallentheater.com.

Powaqqatsi Godfrey Reggio's experimental, psychedelic follow-up to his groundbreaking "Koyaanisqatsi" explored the industrialization of traditional societies, and it also had an excellent score by Philip Glass. Glass conducts his compositions with the L.A. Phil as the film screens. Hollywood Bowl, 2301 N. Highland Ave., L.A. 8 p.m. $1-$130. http://www.laphil.com.

MUSIC

Ghostly night The lauded electronic-music label Ghostly presents two of its rising stars: Tycho's Balearic disco provides for a vibe-y, hazy time on the club floor; Shigeto's more fractalized compositions are less body-rocking but just as textured and immersive. Echoplex, 1154 Glendale Blvd., L.A. 9 p.m. $12. http://www.attheecho.com.
