Simon Gibson performs stand-up at Laughs Comedy Club this weekend.

Fri, Mar 6
Venturing into the growing overlap of folk and electronic influences, Ásgeir Trausti Einarsson blends delicate songwriting with subtle synths that amplify his vocal inflections. His latest album Bury the Moon emphasizes percussion, with the drums shining on tracks like “Lazy Giants” and “Until Daybreak.” Neptune, $19

Mar 6 & 7
Simon Gibson
Originally from Portland, the former New Face winner at the 2018 Just for Laughs Festival returns to the Pacific Northwest for two-night stint, having since appeared on NBC’s Last Call with Carson Daly and Amazon’s Inside Jokes. A self-described 18-year customer service veteran, Gibson makes his points with boisterous imitations, whether they are of evil monsters who ordered chai lattes or contestants on his fictional reality show MasterChef: PoorLaughs Comedy Club, $15

Mar 6 & 7
Bach and Telemann
Dmitry Sinkovsky, a conductor and violinist, leads this foray into the works of Georg Philipp Telemann and the Bach family. Along with principal viola Susan Gulkis Assadi and tenor Zach Finkelstein, the Seattle Symphony performs Johann Christian Bach’s “Symphony in D Major” and Telemann’s “Viola Concerto.” Benaroya Hall, $25–$82

Sat, Mar 7
Laser My Chemical Romance Premiere
For nearly two decades, My Chemical Romance has packaged emo into a mid-aughts style pop punk. Hard-edged guitar shreds like “Teenagers” and spirited, pain-laced anthems like “Welcome to the Black Parade” should make for a vibrant light show as the band’s music takes over the Laser Dome for the first time. Pacific Science Center, $14

Mar 6 & 8
The Los Angeles-based Joseph Chung and Joseph Abella are purveyors of the full electronica spectrum, genre-bending their way through house tracks, drop-laden EDM, and slow-building techno. The duo tours for their debut album The Free World with an opening set from EDM artist LIONE. Neumos, $18

Sun, Mar 8
Board Games and Beer
Elliott Bay Brewing Company offers an adults-only board game night packed with their signature beers like Demolition, Gateway, and Hellmouth at its Lake City location. Attendees are welcome to bring their own games from home, or play one of the selections offered by Elliott Bay, including a brewer-led Dungeons and Dragons. Elliott Bay Brewing Company, Free
