Club Night

Broken Disco at Chop Suey

Broken Disco just keeps getting better. This month, Berlin's Modeselektor returns to Seattle supporting their sophomore record, Happy Birthday!. The last time the duo was here, they leveled Re-bar with their booming, bass-heavy mix of electro, dub, breaks, and techno. Tonight, they're joined by Seattle's own tech-house wizards Jacob London and DJs Recess and Introcut. In the lounge, dubstep ambassador Struggle will be joined by Nordic Soul and Electrosect. Speakers will blow, foundations will shake, legs will liquefy. (Chop Suey, 1325 E Madison St, 324-8000. 9 pm, $12, 18+.)



Kim Jones as Mudman at Henry Art Gallery

In a performance in L.A. in 1978, Kim Jones covered himself in mud and sticks. With a machete from his tour in Vietnam, he hacked at eight beer cans symbolizing his maternal grandfather's eight murderers, smeared himself with feces, hugged an uncomfortable audience member, and walked out the door. Because the structure he wore was too big for the door, it stuck there, trapping the audience. Tonight, Mudman will perform at the opening party of his retrospective at the Henry. I can't wait. (Henry Art Gallery, 15th Ave NE and NE 41st St, 543-2280. 8 pm, $10.)
