Django Django, Clock Opera, Charli XCX, March 12, Santos Party House, $10
Britain takes over Santos Party House tonight with psychedelic dance-rockers Django Django, avant-pop quartet Clock Opera, and goth-pop it-girl Charli XCX. While we’re big fans of the former bands, it’s Charli XCX — architect of darkly infectious gems like “Nuclear Seasons” — who we’re most excited to see. Black lipstick optional.
Monday, March 12, 7 p.m., Santos Party House, 96 Lafayette Street (between Walker and White streets); 212-584-5492.
Lemonade, Brooklyn Bowl, March 14, FREE
While Lemonade’s electro-pop has been a fixture of Brooklyn’s music scene for some time, the band’s new single “Neptune” from the forthcoming Dive pushes them toward smoother, deeper, and more thoughtful territory. Hopefully we'll hear some more new jams on Wednesday. Best of all, the show is FREE with an RSVP.
Wednesday, March 14, 6 p.m., Brooklyn Bowl, 61 Wythe Avenue (between North 11th and 12th streets); Brooklyn, 718-963-3369.
Justice, March 16 and 17, Terminal 5, $40
While the reaction to the prog-leaning Audio, Video, Disco has been mixed (to say the least), Gaspard Augé and Xavier de Rosnay put on a live show second to none when it comes to ear-melting electro-hedonism. We imagine Disco’s guitar solos will be more to our liking when blasted from the Terminal 5’s epic soundsystem.
Friday and Saturday, March 16 and 17, 8 p.m., Terminal 5, 610 West 56th Street (between 11th and 12th avenues); 212-582-6600.
