In the 73-year film history of the Caped Crusader, every actor to portray Bruce Wayne has been white — hitting a nadir this year with Ben Affleck, the pastiest of them all. But LA funk quartet Chicano Batman envisions an alternative history, in which the Batmobile cruises down the 101 blasting sunny-day soul and Latin rock à la Santana on mescaline at Woodstock. If you’re a fan of the guitar, don’t sleep on the lively work of supporting act Imarhan, playing the Tuareg music of North Africa. The Algerian quartet is psychedelic in the long-form sense of the word, when droning riffs create loops of rhythm and heat-bending improv. $14, 7pm Thu, Paper Tiger, 2410 N.
