Cold Beat with Tony Molina, Yi, and Cairo Pythian. 9 p.m. Friday, Jan. 3, at the Uptown; free.

Cold Beat leader Hannah Lew and Tony Molina started 2013 together, when she created a music video for his buoyant guitar anthem "Don't Come Back," a single from Molina's solo debut, Dissed and Dismissed. Technically, the video also encompasses "Sick Ass Riff," a 25-second acoustic etude performed by Molina while wearing a Cro-Mags shirt. Molina's album sold out in the wake of fervent critical praise, but the venerable Slumberland label announced its reissue this year — along with his sophomore full-length. Cold Beat released its first EP in 2013, with two propulsive tracks of jagged guitar swipes and unnerving synths tempered by Lew's inimitable vocals. Since both San Francisco acts began breakthrough years with a collaboration, this joint show welcoming 2014 might prove fortuitous. At any rate, it's free.
