Alt-rock stars MGMT will play the Electric Factory tonight in support of their self-titled album, which was released in September. The band blasted onto the world’s radar a few years back with hit singles “Time to Pretend”, “Electric Feel”, and “Kids”. Since then, their sound has transformed and become more low-key but is still very MGMT. Watch them calmly convince you that “Your Life is A Lie” below and get tickets here.

Singer-songwriter Alice Smith will bring her spirited R&B anthems to the World Cafe Live stage tonight. Smith released She, her long-awaited follow up to 2006′s For Lovers, Dreamers, & Me, back in March. Her sound can be likened to that of Alicia Keys and Corinne Bailey Rae. Get tickets here and watch her latest video for “Be Easy” below.

Dublin musician Declan O’Rourke will play at Tellus360 tonight. O’Rourke’s third album Mag Pai Zai was released stateside in October and was its first release in a foreign territory. Listen to “Time Machine” below and get tickets here.

Hot Tuna at Musikfest Cafe (7:30 p.m., $30-$40)
