Twin Shadow (Republic, 9p.m.)

After his show scheduled for last October was postponed, Dominican Republic born musician George Lewis Jr., known to his fan base as Twin Shadow finally performs at the Republic tonight.

Jared & the Mill (The Willow, 9p.m.)

Indie folk straight out of Phoenix performs at Uptown's venue The Willow. Somewhere in between blues and country, these guys bring a Southwest sound of their own. 

 

She's Beautiful When She's Angry (Indywood, 7p.m.)

This documentary is a flashback to the women's liberation movement in the United States. It strives to show that no progress is permanent. The film runs 92 minutes.
