Four men stand onstage among a mess of wires, synthesizers, drums, and guitars. With a heavy blast of fog and well-timed flashes of multicolored spotlights, the lines between man and machine become blurred. Layers of fast-paced keyboard stack on top of fuzzy guitar and airtight drumming. The beat buzzes below your feet and threatens to knock you down. You'll walk away intact, but your idea of what a live show should be will never be the same. (Neumos, 925 E Pike St, 709-9467. 8 pm, $8, 21+.)
