MUSIC

Andy Clockwise The Australian multi-instrumentalist unleashes his self-described "schizo pop" on L.A. audiences. His album "The Socialite" was recently released in his home country but has yet to see a U.S. release, making this show the best option for hearing his newest material. Satellite, 1717 Silver Lake Blvd., Silver Lake. 8:30 p.m. Free. (323) 661-4380. thesatellitela.com.

LA Font With the Pavement reunion in full swing, LA Font may be the lo-fi legends' biggest local fans. The band's garage-rock debut, "The American Leagues," smolders with "Slanted and Enchanted"-style fuzz and spastic songs that threaten to run off the rails. Silverlake Lounge, 2906 W. Sunset Blvd., L.A. 9 p.m. Free. foldsilverlake.com.

Thao & Mirah Thao Nguyen usually works with her band Get Down Stay Down to craft hummable, enigmatic guitar-pop; Mirah Yom Tov Zeitlyn, as Mirah, makes a more rhythmic, electronic brand of folk. Here, with producer-collaborator Merrill Garbus, a.k.a. tUnE-yArDs, as the thread, the two have meshed perfectly. Hotel Cafe, 1623 N. Cahuenga Blvd., L.A. 7 p.m. $12. hotelcafe.com.

MOVIES

Spielberg double feature Director-producer Steven Spielberg has made some of the most iconic films in modern cinema (and recently got back into action, producing the retro thriller "Super 8"). This event features two of his best, "E.T." and "Close Encounters of the Third Kind." New Beverly Cinema, 7165 Beverly Blvd., L.A. 7:30 p.m. $7. newbevcinema.com.
