Nine Inch Nails, Gary Numan We’re not sure which blew our minds more, when the Associated Press embarrassingly printed that Nine Inch Nails covered Johnny Cash’s “Hurt” on this tour or the fact that we get to hear that throbbing wound of a song live on Halloween night. Plus, Nine Inch Nails has a storied live show that rumor has it will make those KISS and Paul McCartney Amway shows from earlier this year look like shadow puppet plays.

Kurt Vile and the Violators, Beach Fossils Touring on Wakin’ on a Pretty Daze, Kurt Vile is finally, finally coming to Orlando five albums into his mumbling but notable indie rock rise to fame. On Matador and citing Pavement as an influence, Vile offers a breed of lo-fi home recordings that features introspective social commentary over fuzzy, fast guitars. His new album might be his calmest yet, but fingers crossed we’ll hear some of the more charged older tunes as well from the constant hitmaker. 6:30 pm; The Social, 54 N. Orange Ave.; $17; 407-246-1419.
And So I Watch You From Afar, This Town Needs Guns, Mylets 6 pm; The Social, 54 N. Orange Ave.; $12-$14; 407-246-1419.
