Just like Christmas, Muse ‘til Midnight comes but once a year — and, much like Christmas, the illuminating gifts it provides are priceless beyond compare. This year’s theme? The Allure of Music, which comes from the concurrent exhibition “The Allure of Matter: Material Art from China.” Curated by the beast with many heads that is tonight’s collaboration between dublab and Ninja Tune, and boasting musical manifestations by Ki Oni, Actress, Octo Octa, Maral, and Julianna Barwick, there’s also a plethora of food, drink and experiences that will buoy you throughout the night, even after the last chime of midnight has faded away.

Los Angeles County Museum of Art, 5905 Wilshire Blvd., Mid-Wilshire; Sat., Sept. 7, 7:30 p.m.; $20 LACMA members/$30 general. (323) 857-6000, lacma.org/event/muse-allure.
