'Tantrums' at Crawl Space Gallery

Pittsburgh artist Michelle Fried has been locked inside Crawl Space for a week making art, and tonight she opens the doors. Her video, sculpture, and sound work reinvents her own biography from ages 8 to 18, using such cultural landmarks as DJ Tanner, Kurt Cobain, Marshall Applewhite, and Igrid Bayer (Escambia High School's Homecoming Queen). It's the first-ever "Studio Intensive Residency Exhibition" at the gallery. (Crawl Space Gallery, 504 E Denny Way #1, 201-2441. 6–9 pm, free.)



Numbers, Intelligence, Partman Parthorse, Flexions at Sunset Tavern

Four bands, zero filler. The highlight is Numbers, from San Francisco, who play slow-churning, sun-soaked synthedelic pop and have a new album, Now You Are This, on Kill Rock Stars. But the local support is just as impressive, from the sneering postpunk spite of Partman Parthorse to the lo-fi fuzz assault of the Intelligence to the no-wave death dub of Flexions, featuring the outré guitar skills of Devin Welch (of Blood Brothers/Chromatics/Shoplifting renown). All killer. (Sunset Tavern, 5433 Ballard Ave NW, 784-4880. 9 pm, $8, 21+.)
