Die-hard fans of A Perfect Circle—and, honestly, I don’t know anyone who is just sort of a fan of the band—can forgive Maynard and his super-crew for not releasing any new music for seven years or so for getting the chance to see the iconic band live.

Portland is an exporter of three things: Comic books, pornography (seriously, I’m not joking) and indie rock. The latest product that Salt Lake City will see—of the latter category—is the folk-rock quartet The Hague. Get down to Kilby Court at 7 p.m. for some melodious, intricate roots music; afterward, if you choose to indulge in other Portland exports, that’s your business.
The Midwestern alternative-rock group, Ludo, might have the most interesting name for a tour that we’ve seen all year: “Space Dracula’s Basketball Expo.” Some shows will be space-themed, some will be Dracula-themed, some will be basketball-themed, some will be all three. The show starts at 6:30 p.m. at Club Sound; Sparks the Rescue will open.
