Welsh band SUPER FURRY ANIMALS (pictured) headlines a night of avant-pop Wed., JAN. 30, at Variety Playhouse. The band just released Hey Venus!, which marks a transition from its usual dewy-eyed midtempo pop toward hard-rocking glam. The Fiery Furnaces, comprised of brother/sister team Eleanor and Matthew Friedberger, is notorious for its concept albums. One disc, Rehearsing My Choir, was a series of piano-driven reminisces with their grandmother Olga Sarantos who, sadly, just passed away. New York psychedelic band Holy Fuck rounds out an adventurous bill. $15. 8 p.m. 1099 Euclid Ave. 404-524-7354. www.variety-playhouse.com.
