Free; 9 p.m.
Escape the weird winter blahs with another weekend of outer sounds, featuring locals and travelers sharing free bills of exciting, freaky-deaky and possibly off-putting concoctions. Friday night kicks it off with The Tiles, Clarksmithy, Electric Inertia, and Parlour at Lisa’s Oak Street Lounge. On Saturday, the action moves to a possibly more appropriate venue, the Swanson Contemporary gallery in NuLu (aka GillVille), where Ghost Stripper, Mu and the Peeling Wallpaper Ensemble, and Stringtrek will art your heart. The heavy trip concludes at the Nachbar on Sunday with what might be the best buzz of the fest, as Chikamorachi — the duo of drummer Chris Corsano and bassist Darin Gray, known for their various work with Bjork, Jandek, Jim O’Rourke, Merzbow and Wilco’s Glenn Kotche — burn down the barn with locally beloved sound men Steve Good and Tim Barnes. —Peter Berkowitz
