Tired of outdoor festivals and looking for someplace comfy to bliss out? I can’t think of anything better than the experimental electronic duo Matmos performing at the Lakeshore Theater, 3175 N. Broadway, in celebration of its new album “Supreme Balloon.” Leprechaun Catering opens at 9 p.m. Sunday, and tickets are $15; more information available at
