BARING IT ALL: The indie rock dreamboats in Grizzly Bear wrap up their two-night stay at the Metro, no doubt leaving some fans longing for a shirtless rendition of the melodic “Two Weeks.” They play with openers Beach House. 3730 N. Clark St.; Wrigleyville. Doors open at 8 p.m. and show starts at 9 p.m. $25. 18 and older.

WOAH, MAN. STOP HARSHING MY MELLOW: Funghi-ophiles step into the spotlight in Ron Mann’s “Know Your Mushrooms,” which is more about health nuts and less about tie-dye-and-Birkenstock wearing tripsters. The film receives its Chicago première at the Gene Siskel Film Center. 164 N. State St.; Loop. 8:15 p.m. $10 general admission, $7 for students, $4 for School of the Art Institute of Chicago students and faculty members.

TEENAGE HATE: Memphis-based Jay Reatard’s garage-punk tunes are so energetic that his shows often feel like a demented high-school pep rally. Reatard brings his catchy hooks to the Empty Bottle with openers NoBunny, Hunx & His Punx, Box Elders, and Useless Eaters. 1035 N. Western Ave.; Humboldt Park. 9:30 p.m. $15. 21 and older.
