Show: Yakuza On the new Of Seismic Consequence, recorded here in town with Sanford Parker, local progressive-metal band Yakuza “careens recklessly between brutality and beauty, marrying psychedelic space-rock to enough jet-engine power to send the whole package hurtling straight into a supernova—and out the other side unscathed,” writes Monica Kendrick. The band’s set at this release party will include the entire album, top to bottom.

10 PM, Beat Kitchen, 2100 W. Belmont, 773-281-4444 or 866-468-3401,, $10.

Dinner: Turquoise Cafe Prices at this Roscoe Village Turkish restaurant are a little higher than at many ethnic places. But dishes like the sogurme (smoked chunks of eggplant in creamy yogurt with lots of garlic), seafood salad, and the house salad (a piquant medley of red cabbage, arugula, red onion, and romaine lettuce in a lemon herb dressing) are worth a little extra.
