Canadian electro-pop duo Purity Ring played one of the best sets I saw at 2011's MusicfestNW, a potent mix of twee, hiphop, and bass music that catapulted the Doug Fir's basement into the future for 50 minutes. That was before Corin Roddick and Megan James released their outstanding 2012 album Shrines, before they collaborated with Danny Brown and Jon Hopkins, before their remix of Lady Gaga's "Applause." Today, Purity Ring are a much bigger deal. They headline festivals—Oregon's What the Festival last year, for example—and their name has enough cachet that they can book DJ sets like the one they'll perform tonight. What's in store? Who knows? But if Purity Ring's 2013 session for the online music show Boiler Room is any indication, expect originals smoothly sprinkled in among rap/R&B hits by superstars like Nicki Minaj, Ciara, Future, Angel Haze, Jeremih, and Rihanna.
