Or if you've still got a little money to spare, then we suggest the Animal Collective show at Fat Cat's. This Brooklyn-based foursome strums and synths its way through a diverse catalog of ambient tunes. The songs conjure images of nature; sometimes they even speak for the trees. Looks like the Lorax has some competition. Doors at 8:30 p.m., show at 9:30 p.m. 4216 Washington Avenue. For information, call 713-869-5263 or visit www.clubfatcat.com. $9.
