I wish I could definitively tell you which one show you should attend tonight, but there are so many great choices.
For those of you with tickets to see French popstress Yelle, it's gonna get steamy in the Casbah, so dress accordingly. For those of you without tickets, the sexy soul of Aloe Blacc will infuse the Belly Up with some magic, Jesse LaMonaca and the Dime Novels bring the heat to Eleven, and Jaime Foxx rocks Harrah's Rincon. My mom is going to that one, incidentally. I don't know much about Houses, but Dangerbird Records' the One AM Radio is fantastic live, and his latest record hits really deep, so he's worth checking out, too. All over town there are great shows, so explore your city and all it has to offer.
