As a founding member of Tangerine Dream and Kluster, CONRAD SCHNITZLER's fingerprints are all over the secret history of electronic, experimental and otherwise Germanic avant-garde music from the 1960s to the present. For this "Con-cert," Schnitzler and local musician Michael Thomas Roe perform as Mi.T.-CON, spinning several CDs that interact with each other. When each disc begins dictates the arrangements of primitive industrial rhythms that fade in and out over blissful dissonance. Sensitive Chaos, Michael Wynne and the Subliminator also perform. $5. 8 p.m. Kavarna, 707 E. Lake Drive, Decatur. 404-371-1113. www.instantkavarna.com. (Chad Radford)
