With its stained-glass windows and many eye-catching knick-knacks, Velour is already a beautiful place, but thanks to a detailed stage setup and lots of twinkle lights, it usually gets an extra dose of dreamy magic for the Slumber Party. And you'll get to enjoy all the beauty from a cozy spot on the floor with the rest of the audience, who stay seated during the music with their pillows and blankets. Book on Tape Worm will perform at both Friday's and Saturday's shows, but Friday will feature openers Brady and Sydney of Provo indie-folk band The National Parks, and folk-core band Quiet House (the recent winner of Velour's 2014 Winter Battle of the Bands) will open on Saturday.

University Ave., Provo, 8:30 p.m., also Jan. 3, cover TBA, SATURDAY JAN. 3 Albino Father Album Release The local album-release schedule is kicking off in 2015 in a big way, with a show for the release of Albino Father's new album, II. Albino Father was previously the lo-fi/psychedelic/indie-rock project of Matt Hoenes and a rotating cast of guest musicians, but II is the first release by Albino Father to feature a full official band. Lovers of physical media rejoice; II will be released on vinyl—with screen-printed covers—and cassette. For a taste of the new material, visit Albino Father's Bandcamp, where you can listen to the new track "WTTV," which is a relentless barnburner full of killer electric guitar and distorted vocals. Rock & rollers The North Valley, garage-rock/experimental band Koala Temple and King Tiiiger are also on the bill. (Kolbie Stonehocker)
