Decibel starts in earnest on Wednesday, but there's a ton of excellent electronic music around town this weekend to help you get in the mood. Plus other stuff for you normies out there!

Are you into "danceable beats [with] hints of tropical funk" that exude a "glowing optimism," and want to catch a local act gone good who's "poised to climb to a higher level on the mainstream dance-music food chain"? Check out Beat Connection at Neptune Theatre.

Not electronic per se but definitely nice and stone-y, we have Marymoor Park is winding down its summer concert series with Stephen and Damian Marley, so let's hope weather permits at least a bit of legalized fun.

Personally, I may have to peep ambient/experimental godhead TimHeld provide a new soundtrack for schlock classic Predator at NWFF.

Tomorrow's excellence after the jump!

Perhaps you dig experimental, abrasive, subversive, and industrial collages of beats and samples. I'm assuming you've heard, then, that Australian electronic semi-legends Severed Heads will be at the Highline.

Slightly more mainstream but still heady and luxurious are the sounds of Lapalux, who'll be at Nectar, and/or Toro y Moi at Neumos.

If none of that's wetting your whistle, here's the rest of the best and the rest of the rest.

This trumpkin is scary enough. Please vote.
Then score some dank herb from Ruckus to help with the stress.
