Music


“The Return of Draw Egan” screening with Montopolis. The classic silent Western featuring the music of Ennio Morricone will be performed live by chamber rock outfit Montopolis. Comedian Mac Blake has rewritten the movie in the irreverent and absurdist style typical of his work with Master Pancake Theater. In it, notorious bandit Draw Egan makes a name for himself as a lawman in the town of Yellow Dog. 7 p.m. March 5. $13. The Alamo Ritz, 320 E. Sixth St. drafthouse.com


Sy Smith, Eimaral Sol at Empire. Underground queen Sy Smith spent the last decade pushing L.A.’s new soul scene forward alongside fellow West Coast innovators (and former bandmates) Kamasi Washington and Thundercat. With an affinity for lyrical poetry and silky soprano riffs that occasionally slip into post-modern doo-wop, she’s the perfect match for whimsical local R&B standout Eimaral Sol. Torre Blake opens. $12. 7 p.m. March 5. 606 E. Seventh St. empireatx.com. — Deborah Sengupta Stith
