METRIC: Synth-y, fuzzy fun is your bag; this quartet can not only sympathize, but provide you the warm New Wave you need. Singer Emily Haines wears a shiny, short-shorts unitard better than, well, pretty much anyone. Not that you shouldn't try, if shorts-shorts shiny unitards are your thing. The Wiltern, 8PM
FOLK GODDESS: We used to swear that every good folk collection had to have the album "Other Voices, Other Rooms" by Nanci Griffith in it. Wait; we still kind of believe that. Ms. Griffith has the silver-spun voice of angel, and moving song stories to match. She's talking about her new album and inspirations at the GRAMMY Museum. 8PM
LAST CHANCE: It's the final day of Old Pasadena Restaurant Week. With a smidge over two dozen restaurants, we're going to guess there are still a few on your list you'd like to try. Today, and/or tonight, is the time. Eye the full roster here.
