Happening Sunday: Eternal Summers, 'Heaven Adores You,' and more

-Eternal Summers, Princess Reason, Amanda Glasser: Roanoke-based trio Eternal Summers sounds like exactly that: the fuzzed-out beach-punk soundtrack to an eternal summer. The title track off their upcoming fourth album “Gold and Stone,” due June 2, sounds like Lush on a coastal road trip. Joined by local lo-fi punks Princess Reason and dreamy songstress Amanda Glasser, the trio helps Baltimore transition into warmer waves. 9 p.m., Metro Gallery, 1700 N. Charles St., (410) 244-0899, themetrogallery.net, $10. (Maura Callahan)

-“Heaven Adores You”: When someone dies an untimely death due to an overdose or a suicide, they are too often remembered for their sadness. And that sucks, because many people who struggle with depression fight letting that chemical imbalance define them. Elliott Smith, with his ambling guitar and soft-spoken voice, put together a ton of beautiful music when he was alive. And yeah, some of it still feels very depressing and sad, but it’s real and relatable (and they’re not all sad, and certainly don’t all sound that way; remember ‘Say Yes,’ ‘Waltz #2 (XO),’ ‘Baby Britain’). This documentary takes that tone and uses his music to tell the story of his life, along with a couple dozen stories about him from people who knew him, pushing aside the “tortured genius” associated with Smith and making us see him better as a person. 7 p.m., The Ottobar, 2549 N. Howard St., (410) 662-0069, theottobar.com, $8. (Rebekah Kirkman)
