Son Ambulance

Joseph Knapp of Son Ambulance frequently finds himself in the shadow of that other Omaha singer-songwriter heartthrob, and he released his debut as a split with Bright Eyes. But he's worth closer attention in his own right: His latest album, Someone Else's Déjà Vu, is alternately sunny and somber, touched with swirling psychedelic pop flourishes, piano, and organ, and led by Knapp's clear, able voice. With Weinland, the Hunting Club, and Portland's soft-spoken acoustic ensemble A Weather. (Vera Project, Seattle Center, 956-8372. 7:30 pm, $7–$8, all ages.)



'Eat Fight Fuck'

Last week, Implied Violence won a 2008 Stranger Genius Award: This is your chance to run down to an abandoned warehouse and see freshly minted genius at work. Eat Fight Fuck is the third part of a spectacular trilogy Implied Violence has been performing for the last three weeks with live orchestras, live baby chickens, unsettling sex scenes, Civil War–era costumes, fucked-up comedy where you least expect it, and buckets of blood. Part Wu-Tang Clan, part Gertrude Stein, Implied Violence makes an impossible thing: experimental theater you will enjoy watching. (A warehouse in South Lake Union, 801 Aloha St, 356-5948. 8 pm, $10–$20. Through Aug 16.)

    does The Stranger not get along with KEXP? I think they're twits but seems like their BBQ thing today would merit mention. That Saturday Knights dog park song is pretty cool.
