Truly incorporating various genres and styles into his mix sets, legendary DJ and producer MARK FARINA channels his origins in the classic Chicago house scene through a contemporary San Francisco neo-soul vibe. Known for both the downtempo Mushroom Jazz series and the House of OM releases, his track selection is big in bridging the acid ranges of house with a deep and jazzy atmosphere – and he's willing to drop the needle on a hip-hop record or two. $15. 10 p.m. The Mark Ultralounge, 79 Poplar St. 678-904-0050. themarkatlanta.com.

Vampy former Bauhaus frontman PETER MURPHY prances his way back onto the stage to spread his bat wings and unleash his stark, gothic croon unto a new generation of black-clad misanthropes. It's easy to make fun of Murphy's Sprockety movements and self-gratifying demeanor, but the guy is a legend – a British Glenn Danzig who, despite his many easy targets, still churns out occasionally captivating pop songs wrapped in filigree, shadow and texture. $22.50. 8 p.m. Masquerade, 695 North Ave. 404-577-8178. www.masq.com.
