Rise From The Ashes with Jean Grae.

It's bizarre, but true: There now exists a popular chain of restaurants in Taiwan that are modeled after restrooms. Yes, restrooms.

Patrons at Modern Toilet sit on porcelain thrones while ordering things like chocolate ice cream, all of which come served in bowls that look like — you guessed it — toilets. Because, apparently, the No. 1 thing people want to be reminded of when they're eating is what all that food is going to look like a few hours later.

Anyway, since we're on the subject of things going out, here are your best bets around town tonight.

And So I Watch You From Afar at Dada
The brutally loud, challenging squeals of ASIWYFA's ultra heavy riffage are the sort that simply must be experienced live to fully appreciate. As impressive as the Northern Ireland band's recorded works are, they just really don't do this band justice. This brand of blistering tuneage is best served when the amps are cranked to 11. — Cory Graves

Jean Grae at Elm Street Bar
In our opinion, it's been far too long since a truly quality act has performed in this space. Perhaps this X-Men-adoring MC could be just the catalyst Elm Street Bar needs to rise from the ashes like Phoenix? With any luck. It should help matters, meanwhile, that Grae's close associate, rapper Talib Kweli, once called her “one of the last true MCs.” — CG

Cool Out at Crown and Harp
The club may have a new name, but to the crowds of service industry folks and dancefloor junkies who've been flocking to DJ Tony Schwa 's Monday night offerings since circa 2007, not much else has changed. Since returning to its original location, this weekly dance party has been thriving more now than ever. And it has a little extra help this week as Schwa is joined by Track Meet's Shooknite. — CG

Vinyl Tap at Double Wide
Kick it old school at Double Wide tonight, where you can buy, sell, swap, play and hear records and tapes with fellow music lovers. To top it off, DJ Mr. Rid will entertain vinyl enthusiasts with some song selections of his own. If you have that special vinyl you've been searching for, maybe this is your chance to find it. If not, we have some tips for you here. — Jessica Petrocchi.
