MUSIC

Biffy Clyro and Mark Danielewski Witness the marriage of experimental literature and alternative rock as the Scottish band shares the stage with author Danielewski for this one-time-only charity event. Danielewski reads from his "Only Revolutions," the novel that inspired Clyro's 2009 album of the same name, and the band performs. Bootleg Theater, 2220 Beverly Blvd., Los Angeles. $25. (213) 389-3856. http://www.bootlegtheater.org

Swans Michael Gira's legendary proto-industrial band called it quits in 1996, but they re-formed in 2009 and released a new album, "My Father Will Guide Me Up a Rope to the Sky," last year. Resplendent with cosmic spiritual themes, the album nonetheless bursts with the band's characteristic loud and abrasive music and morbid lyrics. Opening acts include Devendra Banhart and Wooden Wand. El Rey Theatre, 5515 Wilshire Blvd., L.A. 8 p.m. $30. (323) 936-6400. http://www.theelrey.com
