Live Tonight: Grum, Kady Z, Rafe Pearlman, Ulrich Schnauss

Grum Scottish producer Graeme Shepherd’s tracks, which exist at the intersection of deep house and new disco, would make Discovery-era Daft Punk proud. New single “Everytime” is the sort of club banger that will surely fill the floor. With Jameson Just, Blacklist. Barboza. 9 p.m. $10 adv. ANDREW GOSPE

Kady Z Pop act Kady Z has been performing since age 3, no doubt inheriting a love of performance from her actress/singer mom, Pia Zadora. But where Mama leaned ’80s girl rock, Kady Z takes inspiration from the likes of Robyn and Gwen Stefani. On the surface, Z’s debut, Ordinary Girl, is a collection of sparkly, club-ready dance cuts with a Disney disposition, but digging deeper, you find a soulfulness in her voice that makes her music compelling. Is she for tweens? The party girls who first heard her music on the finale of Jersey Shore? Or someone else? This intimate lounge show is the perfect opportunity to decide for yourself. With Amanda Markley, Lover Fighter, and guests. El Corazon. 8 p.m. $8 adv./ $10 DOS.

Rafe Pearlman The latest from this America’s Got Talent songwriter is March’s Dust & Gold, a collection of meditative folk songs in collaboration with guitarist/producer Jonathan Plum. With Robb Benson & the Shelk, Zarni de Wet. Tractor Tavern. 9 p.m. $10. AG

Ulrich Schnauss This German keyboardist, DJ, and producer’s down-tempo electronica would be ideal for public transportation—his songs are fluid, delicately textured, and often extend well past seven or eight minutes. Perfect for your next light-rail ride. With Secret Colors. Neumos. 8 p.m. $20 adv. AG
