CHAMPAGNE CHAMPAGNE, MAD RAD, HURTBIRD
FERNANDO, MIKE COYKENDALL, MICHAEL JODELL
(Alberta Rose Theatre, 3000 NE Alberta) Mike Coykendall finally got a little "me" time after a spell producing (and musically contributing to) records for Blitzen Trapper, M. Ward, and She & Him. He released The Unbearable Being of Likeness earlier this year—his first since 2005—a taut half-hour of psychedelic pop that's anything but quiet, an album that shimmers and jangles like 1968 with a few extra bells and whistles thrown in for good measure. What Coykendall's got here is a collection of songs that will surely weather time and trends and, of course, outlive fickle music journalists. And it looks as if he might finally have some time on his hands—look for a new double-LP next year. MARK LORE
DISCOS DISCOS: DJ ZAC ENO, DJ RUMTRIGGER, NATHAN DETROIT
(Holocene, 1001 SE Morrison) What's better than going to the disco? Discos Discos, Holocene's new monthly dance night that's far more discothÈque than Bee Gees. DJs mix the sounds of Latin American reggaeton and South American electro cumbia, so bring the hot pants and leave the Brut at home. SARAH MIRK
