Peter Silberman
As the frontman and songwriter for Brooklyn indie rock outfit the Antlers, Peter Silberman crafted two of the most beautiful and heartwrenching albums of the last decade in Hospice and Burst Apart. The emotional toll was furthered even more when the Antlers announced an indefinite hiatus in 2015. Silberman returned to the stage as a solo act earlier this year and put out an instrumental Transcendless Summer, an single-track 20-minute instrumental EP, in September on ANTI- Records. As part of a brief West Coast tour, Silberman stops by the Triple Door for an intimate evening of tenderly singing out the pain. The Triple Door, $15

Erasures and Spaces: The Revisionist Films of Salise Hughes
Seattle-based media artist, Salise Hughes has a unique method of creating art—through destruction. With a keen focus on regeneration, her techniques for creating short films include digitally erasing  portions of movie images and reediting found pop culture footage and adding other text and audio elements in order to forge new narratives. Grand Illusion Cinema's Erasures and Spaces presents a selection of Hughes's award-winning experimental films, which offer a cinematic experience that you can't find at any big cineplex. Grand Illusion Cinema, $9

The Gotobeds
Sometimes you just need the simple things for an enjoyable night out: jangly punk, cheap beer, and being surrounded by people who like the prior to items on this list. Pittsburgh rock quartet the Gotobeds delivers plenty of fun chaotic noise on its playfully named Sub Pop debut Blood // Sugar // Secs // Traffic. At the very least, we can guarantee it’ll be substantially more enjoyable than last Tuesday night. Sunset Tavern, $10

Chastity Belt
Some of the best things happen by accident. This certainly holds true for the indie rock quartet Chastity Belt, which started in Walla Walla native back in 2013 as a joke at a frat party. From its humble college town beginnings, the band of jokesters has since found its niche in Seattle and flourished as serious musicians (even touring as support for Death Cab for Cutie's 2016 European tour). On the band's two studio LPs, No Regrets and Time To Go Home, lead singer and guitarist Julia Shapiro, bassist Annie Truscott, guitarist Lydia Lund, and drummer Gretchen Grimm have thematically explored the struggles of the young adult mind—feminism, sex, drugs, bad parties, the meaning of life (in a nihilist sense)—with a tone that can range anywhere from boorish to sweet. Soak in the mid-tempo spirit of youthful rebellion when Chastity Belt hits the Chop Suey stage with Malidont and Versing. Chop Suey, $13
