Calendar

Monday 10.13.14

OK Go. Mr. Smalls Theatre. 8 p.m.
Remember that awesome video where a bunch of guys did a synchronized dance on treadmills? Well, that music video was for OK Go’s “Here It Goes Again,” and they’re playing at Mr. Smalls. Can’t guarantee they’ll bring the treadmills, but they’ll definitely bring the indie-pop. Tickets can be purchased at ticketfly.com.

Tuesday 10.14.14

Fleetwood Mac. CONSOL Energy Center. 8 p.m.
Your parent’s favorite band ­­— and maybe yours, they’re really good — are playing at CONSOL. Expect a lot of middle-aged dancing, and definitely some tears when Stevie Nicks sings “Landslide.” Tickets can be purchased at ticketmaster.com.

Boombox. Rex Theater. 8 p.m.
This funky electronic and rock duo will be bringing fresh jams to the Rex. Expect corny dancing, and plenty of it. Tickets can be purchased at ticketfly.com.

Wednesday 10.15.14

Bassnectar. Stage AE. 8 p.m.
The king of the sound will be bringing his immersive live experience, including more speakers than a Bose warehouse and an LED screen larger than the ones in Times Square (okay, maybe that’s a bit of an exaggeration), to Stage AE. Expect to see brains on the floor from the number of minds blown. Tickets can be purchased at stubhub.com or through Carnegie Mellon Facebook networks.

J Mascis. Club Café. 8 p.m.
The Dinosaur Jr. frontman will be playing a solo show at Club Café. Expect to see hipsters of all ages standing still together. Tickets can be purchased at ticketfly.com.

The Gaslight Anthem. Stage AE. 7 p.m.
These Jersey punk rockers have reached the pinnacle of Garden State musical success — counting Bruce Springsteen as a fan — so you know they’re worth checking out. Folk-punk act Against Me!, who have been undergoing a resurgence in popularity following lead singer Laura Jane Grace’s coming out as transgender, will be opening. Tickets can be purchased at ticketmaster.com.

Saturday 10.18.14

Fall Festival. Heinz Hall. 8 p.m.
Join the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra in a celebration of autumn. Playing songs inspired by the changing of the leaves, including “Harry’s Wondrous World” from Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone and selections featured in Disney’s Fantasia, this evening is sure to delight one more than a pumpkin spice latte. Tickets can be purchased at trustarts.culturualdistrict.org.

tUnE-yArDs. Mr Smalls Theatre. 8 p.m.
The quirky musical project of songwriter Merril Garbus will be performing at Mr. Small’s. When playing live, Garbus creates drum loops on the spot and adds layers of multiple instruments, including ukulele, electric bass, and vocals. So it should be an interesting show. Tickets can be purchased at ticketfly.com.
