Fans of avant-garde and anarcho jazz-punk will thrill to Thollem Electric at The Kosmos (1715 Fifth Street NW) tonight. Part-time Nuevo Mexicano pianist and vocalist Thollem McDonas tickles those Fender Rhodes ivories pink—nay, fuchsia—and his lyrics, vox and analog sound manipulation may induce frisson. McDonas is touring solo in support of international avant-punk outfit Tsigoti's new release, Read Between the Lines … Think Outside Them, and In the Valley of the Cloudbuilder, the debut full-length of Bad News from Houston, his revelatory collaboration with Deerhoof's John Dieterich. Consort Un-Caged opens the gig with  percussion, flute and effects-centric art-rock and Tuia Cherici's Manucinema films screen as real-time avant wallpaper. This all-ages concert starts at 8 p.m., and 10 bucks gets you in. The Kosmos • Fri Apr 12 • 8 pm • $10 • View on Alibi calendar
