    MAGNIFIQUE: The magic makers of Nouvelle Vague tinker with snotty, androgenous tunes like Generation X's "Dancing With Myself," turning punk and new wave hits into sultry  bossa nova songs. The French band is scheduled at the Granada with Chameleon Chamber Group and Shock of Pleasure; tickets start at $18 and can be found here. 8PM.
