Collections of Colonies of Bees + The Wordplay, Sleep Tight Co. @ The Cactus Club (2496 S. Wentworth), 10 p.m.
Collections of Colonies of Bees make musical magic by creating complexity of sound with a stark and simplistic finish. Brilliantly effortless, their live shows are highly riveting and highly acclaimed, endorsed by tour-mate, Bon Iver, himself. With The Wordplay and Sleep Tight Co.

IfIHadAHifi + Lord of the Yum Yum, E=MC Hammer, Eat Sugar @ The Borg Ward (823 W. National Avenue), 7 p.m.
IfIHadAHifi are usually the ones to bring the audio and visual assault onstage. They might have a little competition at The Borg Ward on Friday with their showmate, the gangly and always oddball Lord of the Yum Yum. The L.O.T.Y.Y.’s beat-boxing and frantically looped vocal renditions of classical songs “Flight of the Bumblebee” and the “Ukranian Bell Carol” makes for one weird, unforgettable challenge.
