1) Tame Impala is the one-man band of Kevin Parker of Perth, Australia. He and four touring musicians will play the Petersen Events Center this month. The almost eight-minute-long, psychedelic whirlwind of “Let It Happen” from their third studio album, Currents, is an example of Tame Impala’s skill. Another interesting question is which is better: the slow headnod of “‘Cause I’m a Man” or its spiraling, 3D music video. Tame Impala is also sure to play cuts from 2010’s Innerspeaker and 2012’s critically acclaimed Lonerism. Get ready for quite a few Pink Floyd-esque light effects as well. Tame Impala is on their Slow Rush tour in support of their 2020 album release of the same name. Junglepussy opens. 8 p.m. 3719 Terrace St., Oakland. (C.M., R.H.)
2) If looking for something fun and informative, now may be the time to get out of your house and visit the Carnegie Museum of Natural History. Sure, the dinosaurs are awesome and the gem collection is unsurpassed, but the museum offers so much more. Check out the Alcoa Foundation Hall of American Indians where the beaded moccasins and porcupine quill art is stunning. Or the Wycoff Hall of Arctic Life with its replica igloo and walrus-mounted iceberg. And don’t forget the Walton Hall of Ancient Egypt. There’s also an interesting exhibit called River Monsters. The Natural History Museum even offers virtual and museum to go programs. Open from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. today. Closed Tuesdays. 4400 Forbes Ave., Oakland.
