Wondering what to do tonight? No need to check your planner-we’ve got your daily post on what’s happening around town.

All about the noise
There’s a musical toss-up today. You could set out for Harrison, head to The Den and hear the one-man band Jerry Fordham, whose repertoire includes guitar, fiddle, flute, keyboard, harmonica and saxophone. Or you could hang out downtown, head to Sluggo’s and hear a line of three experimental musicians-C. Lavender, Dinner Music and Segamented Wormscrank out electronic music that has more to with the texture of sound and the incorporation of out-of-the-box instruments and visual interpretation than melody and beat.

When: 8-11 p.m. for Jerry Fordham or 10 p.m. for Sluggo’s
Where: 6306 Highway 58 for The Den or 501 Cherokee Blvd. for Sluggo’s
How much: Free for The Den and $5 for Sluggo’s
