The third most beloved of Stephin Merritt’s four bands is still plenty beloved. And this reunion tour is something to celebrate, commemorating not only the release of the brand-new Future Bible Heroes album Partygoing, but also the rerelease of all the band’s previous work on one remastered CD. Along with FBH mainstays Merritt and Christopher Ewen, tonight’s show features Claudia Gonson and Shirley Simms, whose vocals have lit up countless classic songs by the Magnetic Fields and the Sixths. (Tractor Tavern, 5213 Ballard Ave NW,, 9:30 pm, $15, 21+)
