MUSIC

Wu-Tang Clan The lauded but erratic Staten Island posse Wu-Tang Clan is untouchable in the hip-hop canon but has yet to recapture the menace and magic of its early records. But it has tightened its live sets considerably in recent years, and no one can match the range of the group's talents, from RZA's slinky noir beats to the eccentric virtuosity of Ghostface and Method Man's weedy bonhomie. Club Nokia, 777 Chick Hearn Court, L.A. 9 p.m. $41.50-$61.50. clubnokia.com.

(213) 413-8200. http://www.attheecho.com
