    TRIPPY: Massive Attack has nicely outlived the 1990s, a.k.a. the decade it shaped with the smash trip-hop milestone “Mezzanine” (a.k.a. the record with the theme song from “House” on it). Riding their 2010 release “Heligoland,” they play a second night at Terminal 5 with psychedelic threesome Neon Indian and ex-Tricky collab Martina Topley-Bird joining in. 8PM.

    MULTI-TALENT: In celebration of blogebrity Emily Gould’s Stevie Nicks-inspired essay collection “And The Heart Says Whatever,” authors and performance artists like Julie Klausner (“I Don’t Care About Your Band”) and Mike Albo (“The Underminer”) pay tribute to the Witchy Woman and other musicians) with the And The Heart Says Whatever Talent Show and Comedy Hour at the Housing Works Bookstore Café. Not a dull moment here, we predict. 7PM.

    SHORT CUTS: Co-presented by Scene: Brooklyn, Brooklyn Arts Council's film and media arts series with BAMCinématek,Electric Picture Show brings together a baker’s dozen animated short films by artists currently working and creating in Brooklyn, from a film about Huck rafting down the Gowanus with his dog to an Animal Collective music video to a short featuring the wonders of—yes—banananimation. BAMRoseCinemas, 6:50, 9:15PM
