Few Seattle musicians have the ambition to host their own 30th birthday party in the lofty recital chamber of Town Hall; fewer still have the talent and collaborators to pull it off. But Jherek Bischoff is up to the task. The Dead Science bassist and composer has recorded solo under his own name and as Ribbons, and he's worked with the likes of David Byrne, Degenerate Art Ensemble, Xiu Xiu, and countless others. Tonight, for one night only, Bischoff presents 13 original compositions for 40 musicians. One piece will employ 30 glockenspiels; all will presumably feature Bischoff partying like it's his birthday. (Town Hall, 1119 Eighth Ave, 676-2321. 8 pm, $5–$15 sliding scale, all ages.)
