Happening Tuesday: Death Cab for Cutie and more
Allegro Non Troppo Cinefamily presents a rare 35-millimeter screening of the 1976 musical from master Italian animator Bruno Bozzetto. A feature-length parody of Disney’s “Fantasia,” “Allegro Non Troppo” bursts with even more psychedelic potential than its predecessor. Bozzetto visualizes Ravel’s “Bolero” as an evolutionary fantasy (one that supposes life began as germs from a discarded Coke bottle), and uses Vivaldi’s Concerto in C as the backdrop of an insect-revenge scenario. Cinefamily, 611 N. Fairfax Ave., L.A. 8 p.m. $10. https://www.cinefamily.org
Death Cab for Cutie The beloved indie rock four-piece proved it isn’t running out of steam after 14 years with the recent release of its seventh studio album, “Codes and Keys.” Vocalist Ben Gibbard and Co. have never been short on sonic exploration or lyrical ambition, but their newest work -— recorded in various West Coast studios — finds them delving into some of their most layered, lush and ambient work to date. El Rey Theatre, 5515 Wilshire Blvd., L.A. 8 p.m. $35. Sold out. (323) 936-6400. https://www.theelrey.com
Anna Calvi The artistic reference points in the largely glowing reviews out of the U.K. of the debut album from the English guitarist, singer and songwriter, which came out this week in the U.S., are more often cinematic than musical. Her often eerie portraits of romantic obsession have drawn allusions to David Lynch’s gothic edginess, Sergio Leone’s mythological expansiveness and the ravishing beauty of Chinese director Wong Kar-Wai’s films. Troubadour, 9081 Santa Monica Blvd., West Hollywood. 9 p.m. $15. https://www.troubadour.com
Bob Neuwirth and David Felton Though Bob Neuwirth is known by many for his music, having worked with such towering figures as Bob Dylan and John Cale, he is a visual artist at heart, evidence of which is visible in his exhibition “Overs & Unders,” on display through Saturday. Neuwirth will discuss his work in conversation with the journalist and TV writer David Felton, a former reporter at the Times. Track 16 Gallery, 2525 Michigan Ave., Santa Monica. 8 p.m. $20. https://www.livetalksla.org
