Farms in Trouble and The Curious Mystery @ Frank’s Power Plant (2800 S. Kinnickinnic), 10 p.m.

Farms in Trouble‘s pastiche sound concocted of loops, samples, random instrumentation and a slight mad professor creative mentality makes their infrequent shows an extremely worthwhile and interesting spectacle. With Seattle’s The Curious Mystery.

Jail, The Mojomatics (ITL), France Has the Bomb (MN), Death Dream @ the Bay View Brewhaus (2535 S. Kinnickinnic), 10 p.m.

Milwaukee’s Jail has been out on a month-long tour — their last tour stop of Milwaukee should give them a little energy boost, as well as their insanely energetic show mates, Italy’s Mojomatics and Minneapolis’ France Has the Bomb. Making their premiere performance will be locals Death Dream, featuring members of the Mistreaters, IfIHadAHiFi, Freight, White Problems and Mother Orchis.
