For one night, forget about Arcade Fire. Put away your Decemberists and Wilco albums, and expand your aural horizons by going to see Huun Huur Tu. The quartet from Tuva, near Russia's border with Mongolia, practices the ancient art of throat singing: They contort their mouths and throats so that they simultaneously produce two multiple pitches. It's a weird, otherworldly sound that's guaranteed to take you by surprise. As one YouTube commenter explained, "Listening to these guys will protect you from alien paralysis."
