If, like me, you stupidly missed the Stranger Genius Awards party in September, tonight's your chance at a do-over, at least as far as the entertainment is concerned. James "Straight Outta Spokane" Pants will deliver a set of dusty hiphop beats, stoned funk, Nagel-print-cool '80s electro, and various other thrift-store-scored sounds. Daedelus will splice samples and summon unlikely dance-party anthems from the glowing, blinking buttons of his arcane Monome machine. With locals Velella Velella and DJ WD4D. (Nectar, 412 N 36th St, 632-2020. 9 pm, $10, 21+.)
