WEDNESDAY JAN. 1

NEW YEAR’S DAY
[HOLIDAYS] Happy end of the holidays! Your next day off is May 26!


FRIDAY JAN. 3

WREKMEISTER HARMONIES
[MUSIC] In 2012, Chicago experimentalist J.R. Robinson screened his avant-garde documentary You’ve Always Meant So Much to Me at the Museum of Contemporary Art, with live musical accompaniment from collaborators in the Windy City’s metal underbelly. The resulting album is among the best metal recordings of 2013, alternately lush and terrifying. Tonic Lounge, 3100 NE Sandy Blvd., 238-0543. 9 pm. $10 advance, $12 day of show. 21+.

LOU REED TRIBUTE NIGHT
[MUSIC] The inveterate New Yorker died in October at age 71. He held special sway ’round Puddletown, as shown by this eclectic assemblage of performers. Expect roots luminaries Fernando and Michael Dean Damron to infuse their cuts with  Americana. And if Kenny Feinstein—lately famed for his string-band version of My Bloody Valentine’s Loveless—gives Metal Machine Music the bluegrass treatment, the dearly departed might even crack a smile. Dante’s, 350 W Burnside St., 345-7892. 9 pm. $8. 21+.

SATURDAY JAN. 4

DEAD MOON
[MUSIC] Over his 40-year career as a self-made rock-’n’-roll lifer, Fred Cole has made a point of gunning forward and never looking back on his past. So this reunion of the dark, doomy punk band that made him and his wife, Toody, legends in the Pacific Northwest and abroad isn’t just a treat but something that truly may never happen again. Crystal Ballroom, 1332 W Burnside St., 225-0047. 8 pm. $20. All ages.


SUNDAY JAN. 5

LAWRENCE OF ARABIA
[MOVIES] When filming the camel-riding scenes in David Lean’s fantastically overstuffed epic, Peter O’Toole downed bottles of brandy and lashed himself to the snorting ungulate. Toast the legendary lush at this revival screening, featuring a digital restoration of the 1962 classic. Hollywood Theatre, 4122 NE Sandy Blvd., 493-1128. 2 pm. $8.


MONDAY JAN. 6

TOO STUPID TO QUIT: 30 YEARS OF UNCONVENTIONAL TOOLS
[SCIENCE] John Economaki made furniture until an allergy to wood dust sidelined him. Now he makes heirloom tools on display at the Museum of Contemporary Craft, through Feb. 8. Find out why exactly he wants to make chisels and bevels that look more like avant-garde sculptures than what you’d find in your grandpa’s toolshed. Hollywood Theatre, 4122 NE Sandy Blvd., 797-4677. 7 pm. $5 suggested.
