Given all the angst the regime in Moscow has stirred up lately, it’s more vital than ever to keep the rebellious spirit of Viktor Tsoy and his legendary Russian post-punk band KINO alive. Luckily, the tribute trio Kino Proby are embarking on a three-date, three-state tour this month that stops at SPACE Gallery (538 Congress St., Portland) at 8 p.m. tonight. Tix: $8-$10 (all ages). 828-5600. space538.org.
