What To Do Tonight: Jazzy excursions, heavy hitters and pleasant indie folks

I'm going to pass on David Archuleta tonight, so let's move on to some more appealing options:

•Have you checked out Wild Goose Creative yet? The new art and performance center is located at 2491 Summit St., just south of Rumba Cafe, and it looks pretty slick for a DIY space. Tonight Wild Goose welcomes I Heart Lung, a spaced-out freeform jazz combo on Sufjan Stevens' Asthmatic Kitty label. I wasn't really feeling Interoceans, their recent four-part, 44-minute suite, but somewhere almost 20 minutes in they won me over. I imagine it will be more majestic in person. Super Desserts, who are everywhere these days, will play first at 8 p.m. As noted above, admission is $6.

Warship! (This is not as good of a band name as Idle Warship, but it's pretty badass nonetheless.) This band, on the other hand, had me at hello. Their metal/hardcore hybrid Supply and Depend is the latest evidence that Vagrant Records ain't as uniformly emo as it used to be. (They also put out The Hold Steady's records, in case you were wondering.) From Autumn to Ashes fans probably already know Warship features that band's Francis Mark. You would be wise to mosy down to Circus, 1227 N. High St., and see these guys rock alongside Bohemian Grove and Devil in Exile. 10 p.m., $5.

•In the latest of its increasingly appealing lineups, Oldfield's on High, 2590 N. High St., hosts a compendium of indie rock and folk acts plus nerdcore rapper Huge Euge. The aforementioned indie folks include Jonathan Hape and The Town Monster. Cafe Bella's musical mastermind Curtis Cole is scheduled to play too, although I have heard he is playing a house show somewhere else, so who knows if he'll show?
