TUESDAY, APRIL 15

Full Moon Total Eclipse of the Empire: The Shakewells + NooM + Skurge @ Kiss Lounge

This Tuesday, celebrate the copper full moon and one of the two lunar eclipses of the year. Witching Hour Events have built up a reputation for planning these fun parties based around the idea of promoting geopolitical change through open-mindedness. That’s a cool way of saying that their events always feature great music, film, art activities, trippy projections by local visual artists and some sort of unconventional entertainment (this time it’s live Kung Fu and something called the Space Unicorns Go Go Dancers).

Doors open at 9:30 p.m., $7.

THURSDAY, APRIL 17

Bad Uncle + Kids Eat Crayons @ Divan Orange

Show starts at 10 p.m., $10.
