Mashup king Gregg Gillis (AKA Girl Talk) headlines a show tailor-made for folks who don't give a shit whether their music is highbrow or low just so long as it's danceable. It'll be interesting to see if Gillis' laptop can fill up an entire city block. Even more interesting, though, are Starfucker, whose weird, spacey pop songs are made instantly catchy by Shawn Glassford's bass. But certainly the most exhilarating band are the guys who play first. You can try to dance to AU, but if you're paying any kind of attention, you'll likely be too busy picking your chin up off the floor. In their latest incarnation, for the album Both Lights, AU play folk music on Adderall—frenetically paced, gorgeously layered, and constantly surprising. REBECCA WILSON
