Ages 21 and up. A true master, Ben Klock combines an "unexacting fusion of quantum jumps [with] effortless melodies.".

You Can Always Leave. Presented by Scissor & Thread and SAFE. With Francis Harris, DJ Sprinkles, and Diego. Friday, December 6, 10 p.m., Electric Pickle, 2826 N. Miami Ave., Miami; 305-456-5613; electricpicklemiami.com. Tickets cost $20 plus fees via residentadvisor.com. Sure, "You Can Always Leave," but with the subtle and smart house beats of Francis Harris (AKA Adultnapper and the man behind the Scissor & Thread record label), not to mention the irrepressible electronic experimentalist and queer icon DJ Sprinkles (AKA Terre Thaemlitz), we're pretty sure that you're gonna stay. All night long. Till the very next morning.
