Friday, 9/13:

Deervana
Brooklyn Bowl
9pm, $25
Even though the alt-country quintet Deer Tick has a new album, Negativity, coming out September 24, they're celebrating another negativity-themed LP tonight: Nirvana's dark swan song, In Utero, which debuted 20 years ago today. Performing as Deervana, the group promises to mimic every shambolic Dave Grohl breakdown and each growled invective that dripped from Kurt Cobain's lips on the grunge archetype's original third record. The last time Deervana played Brooklyn Bowl two years ago, mosh pits broke out for nearly every song and the band ended the set by destroying its instruments à la Cobain and Co. at the VMAs. It's exactly what you'd want a Nirvana tribute to be. With T. Hardy Morris. -- By Kory Grow

Houses + Jamaican Queens + Modern Merchant
The Mercury Lounge
10:30pm, $12
After an impulsive move to the dreamscape of Hawaii, Chicago duo Dexter Tortoriello and Megan Messina were inspired to leave behind their past as Apple store employees and engage in art full-time. Gaining a wave of critical acclaim based on the strength of his first release, "Endless Spring," Messina joined Tortoriello in creating ambient, emotional electronic music. Littered with unlikely samples and melancholy duets, Houses deliver a poignant, rhythmic set that will set your mind reeling. -- By Caitlin White

Trouble & Bass
Sullivan Room
10pm, $20
Back in May, Red Bull Music Academy's NYC takeover was highlighted by a genre-crossing Culture Clash, a fierce musical battle that was won by an unexpected crew: local dance squad Trouble & Bass. Led by Drop the Lime, a born-and-raised New Yorker who leans toward unforgiving electro and club in his sets but infuses his solo releases with (of all things) rockabilly, T&B are teaming with Verboten to throw themselves a seventh birthday party tonight at the West Village's Sullivan Room. Expect guest sets from Fool's Gold duo Oliver and Altern-8, that pair of Roland-wielding British rave pioneers who have performed in gas masks and chemical-protection suits. With Star Eyes, AC Slater, Tony Quattro, Doctor Jeep, Jubilee, DKDS, and Dev/Null. -- By Nick Murray

Glass Candy + Chromatics
Terminal 5
9pm, $25
This Northwest synthpop quartet Chromatics have been mixing and matching members to create a fuzzy, disco-infused lo-fi sound that's been nearly a decade in the making. Last year's Kill for Love saw the group growing into an eclectic, electronic sound both sinewy and sinuous, offering the sort of mashup of violence and passion suggested by the title. Expect Northwest grit with the grunge sanded right out. -- By Caitlin White

'The Bunker' w/ Luke Slater + Abdulla Rashim + Deadbeat + Bryan Kasenic
Output
10pm, $15/$20
Seminal English techno DJ Luke Slater has enjoyed a career renaissance in 2013, headlining Detroit's Movement Festival in a rare live appearance as Planetary Assault Systems and announcing his debut album under the alias L.B. Dub Corp. Slater's productions are predatory beasts that growl with ballistic energy, and his luminous soundscapes will be balanced at the Bunker with the North American debut of Abdulla Rashim and his brooding, slow-burn techno. -- By Aaron Gonsher
