Getting Up Guide: Underworld; A Sunny Day in Glasgow

By Alex Baldinger

What are your plans tonight? The Getting Up Guide is here to help you answer that question. Here's what's happening Monday:

W.S. Merwin
The current U.S. Poet Laureate, author of the collections "Present Company," "Migration" and "The Shadow of Sirius," reads from his work in the opening of the Library of Congress's Fall Literary Season in the Coolidge Auditorium. A reception and book signing follow the 7 p.m. event.

One of electronic music's best live bands plays thumpingly loud dance anthems that never lack for cathartic crescendos. But what you're really looking for at an Underworld show is the rendition of "Born Slippy," the track that launched them to fame when it appeared on the "Trainspotting" soundtrack. Doors open at 7 p.m. at the 9:30 Club.

A Sunny Day in Glasgow

The Philadelphia avant-indie-pop group, fronted by Ben Daniels and an otherwise ever-changing roster, tour in support of their newest release, "Autumn, Again." With Candy Claws and Superhumanoids at the Rock and Roll Hotel.
