Nativity in rock, jazz hands, punk sundae and marrow-melting psych

In an attempt to economically cover eclectic shows, we shook the music section format up a bit. This week’s Shows Up! proffers aural sweets for music lovers of all stripes. Whether they’re into Native rock and roll, jazz, post-punk or marrow-melting psych rock, live music fans have no reason to be bored this week. Tonight, check out Nativity in rock at Low Spirits (2823 Second Street NW) during Rock the 9 or cruise to The Fe for the touring version of the Monterey Jazz Festival. If you head north on Friday, there’s more yummy punk to lap up, and, on Tuesday, Canadian psych-rock fivesome Black Mountain hypnotizes at Launchpad. Peep related A/V below. Low Spirits • Rock the 9 • Dawa • I Conscious • Ed Kabotie • Jim Ruel • Thu Apr 25 • 9 pm • $10 • 21+ • lowspiritslive.com

Andy Warhol at the Factory

Music

What is a Factory Party?

Andy Warhol was among the most iconic and prolific visual artists of the 20th century, a highbrow and low class culture cultivator of profound influence. The pop artist is just as recognized for his soup cans or Marilyn Monroes as he is for the silver New York "Factory" where those works were produced (while his Superstars and other celebrities milled about, glamorously bored). But Warhol was also an avant-garde filmmaker, publisher, producer and dabbler in performance art. One facet of this multidimensional career was The Exploding Plastic Inevitable, a series of traveling multimedia shows that occurred between 1966 and 1967. The shows featured Warhol's films, dancing and performances by Factory regulars and house band The Velvet Underground.

In reverence of these legendary parties, on Saturday, Aug. 27, the Alibi's Group Hug will host its own Factory Party featuring film projections, screen printing and real-live superstars.
