Recent years have seen a wave of young musicians making soft, sample-heavy electronic music that takes pains to sound lo-fi and lower in ambition—chill, even. With the same tools used to make the state-of-the-art-sounding stuff, these acts create gauze and haze, reheat '80s dollar-bin fluff and ephemera, and take their amniotic beats all the way back to the womb. Oberlin duo Teengirl Fantasy are among the better of this bunch, a blasé of glory that makes listlessness sound danceably kinetic and sweet. U.S.F. are the ideal local openers; Pictureplane are the ideal time to sneak out to the Mecca for a drink. (Vera Project, Seattle Center, 956-8372, 7:30 pm, $9, all ages)
