Get a Lift from Astronauts, Etc. 

With Harriet Brown, Friday, April 8, 7 p.m., Neurolux

Friday's forecast calls for sunshine and a high near 85 degrees, which might warrant a playlist of high-energy songs. This is Boise, though, which means the weather is as unpredictable as Donald Trump's hair in a windstorm. If we're looking at rain, more laid-back tunes would be apt. On Friday night, get wrapped in the chill (but danceable) melodic pop of Oakland, Calif.-based Astronauts, Etc. to bridge the extremes. Classically trained frontman Anthony Ferraro creates music that is light but deep, airy and solid at the same time, and works in the sweet spot between science and soul.

According to a 2015 interview with T Magazine, Ferraro got into the algorithm writing scene by falling in with hackers. "I learned how to program really quick, and wanted to use it as a composition aid for myself,'" he said. He did just that and, according to the article, his "Hypothetical Beats" was included at "the world's first algorithm auction at the Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum."

Friday's forecast: awesomeness with a chance of brilliance.
