[THEATER] New company Ominous Horse presents a fresh translation of an 1836 play by Georg BÃ¼chner, about a young soldier who goes insane, with original music by Ryan Sollee, frontman of the Builders and the Butchers, performed live by the cast. The Headwaters, 55 NE Farragut St., No. 9, 984-5831. 8 pm Thursdays-Saturdays, 2 pm Sundays through March 17. $10-$15. Thursdays are âpay what you will.â [MOVIES] Cort and Fatboy resurrect Bruce Lee at his most kickinâ. Their timing is, of course, a subtle love letter to Ruth Brown and her favorite childhood dragons. Bagdad Theater, 3702 SE Hawthorne Blvd., 236-9234. 11 pm. $3. [MUSIC] The bass-heavy wobble of dubstep is quickly becoming impossible to ignore. One person you can thank for that is John Dadzie, known to his fans as 12th Planet. The L.A.-based producer has worked with Skrillex, Skream and Rusko, to name a fewâand heâs one of the more stylish dubstep producers around. Peterâs Room, 8 NW 6th Ave., 219-9929. 9 pm. $5. [MOVIES] For the first 84 of its 85 minutes, Ben Wheatleyâs Kill List is an effectively unnerving descent into human depravity. Itâs building toward one big, empty shock but, for those 84 minutes, Kill List is the most intriguing (and most unflinchingly brutal) genre experiment from this yearâs PIFF. Hollywood Theatre, 4122 NE Sandy Blvd., 281-4215. Multiple showtimes. $5-$7.
[MUSIC] The acclaimed Indian bamboo flutist, whoâs recorded 50 CDs and performed with everyone from John McLaughlin to Zakir Hussain, is accompanied by violin and percussion in the alluring music of Southern India. First Baptist Church, 909 SW 11th Ave., 523-8690. 7:30 pm. $15-$25.
[MUSIC] For her solo project La Sera, Vivian Girls bassist Katy Goodman sheds the distortion and noise that cloud the Brooklyn trioâs melodies in favor of a more lush sound, driven by guitars and marked by vocal harmonies. The redheaded indie darling is soon to release her second solo album under the La Sera moniker, Sees the Lights. Her lilting vocals have the power to make even breaking up sound uplifting throughout the forthcoming albumâs 10 tracks of retro-tinged pop. Holocene, 1001 SE Morrison St. 8:30 pm. $8. 21+.
