The Church

7:30 p.m. • Cedar Cultural Center • $30-$35

The Church put out some of the most elegant records in the “120 Minutes”-era alt-rock stable, with 1988’s hit “Under the Milky Way” only scratching the surface of their melodic moodiness. Even with three gifted singer/songwriters in the group, the Australian band’s core remained intact until its latest record, “Further/Deeper,” for which guitarist Marty Wilson-Piper was “unavailable.” Co-founders Steve Kilbey and Peter Koppes are marking the group’s 35th anniversary with Powderfinger guitarist Ian Haug for a replacement. Opening is the chamber-rock ensemble the Sharp Things, whose leader Perry Serpa has arranged strings for TV on the Radio and others. Chris Riemenschneider

 

Flight Facilities

9 p.m. • Fine Line • 18-plus • $20-$35

Flight Facilities is the latest smooth ’n’ groovy electronic music maker bringing danceable tunes to the Twin Cities. The Australian DJ duo rose to relevance with their viral 2010 single “Crave You,” a contagious cut of stylish electro-pop that sounds just as fresh and infectious as it did five years ago. After years of pumping out impressive singles following the success of “Crave You,” the pair at last released its debut full-length, “Down to Earth,” last fall. This behemoth LP employs a diverse assortment of talented vocalists, from unique undergrounders (“Crave You” singer Gisele Fahrbach, hip-hop up-and-comer Bishop Nehru) to bankable names (Reggie Watts and Kylie Minogue). Opening is labelmate Touch Sensitive, a cult favorite in the U.K. indie-dance scene. Alex Nelson
