MOVIES

'The Clock' In the movies, the image of a ticking timepiece is a common symbol — of waking up, of quitting time, of impending doom — but in Christian Marclay's 24-hour montage, "The Clock," it's the star. Culled from thousands of movies and TV shows, the film stitches together myriad images of clocks and watches while remaining perfectly in sync with the time in the real world. The film screens in its entirety, ending Tuesday at 11 a.m. Los Angeles County Museum of Art, 5905 Wilshire Blvd., L.A. 11 a.m. Free. (323) 857-6000. http://www.lacma.org.

MUSIC

Federico Aubele The genre-bending Argentine singer-songwriter's recently released fourth studio album, "Berlin 13," draws inspiration from his time living in the German capital. He'll display his penchant for acoustic guitar work, heavy rhythms and ominous dub atmospherics, supported by opening act Line & Circle. The Troubadour, 9081 Santa Monica Blvd., West Hollywood. 8 p.m. $15. (310) 276-6168. http://www.troubadour.com.

He's My Brother, She's My Sister The Kolar siblings are longtime gadflies in the Silver Lake neo-folk scene. With this new combo they play up their musical sixth sense together with tight harmonies, easygoing songwriting and a tap-dancing percussionist. Satellite, 1717 Silver Lake Blvd., L.A. 9 p.m. Free. http://www.thesatellitela.com.

EVENTS
