Black Moth Super Rainbow

Local 506—Black Moth Super Rainbow's diffuse electronic pop, which almost echoes the arty aloof of New York beat-breakers like Excepter and Gang Gang Dance, sounds like soap dropped into water looks: The essence splatters on the surface, spinning faint colors in slight circles that stick together. A mix of trance and dance with a hook floating somewhere up above, Black Moth pulls you in just to pulse you out. Chicago duo Serengeti & Polyphonic, recent additions to the avant hip-hop stable of anticon., brighten the corners of that label's generally grim aesthetic, putting hypercolor, kinetic beats beneath lyrics that tend to ask big questions and smirk somewhat cynical answers. Pay $10 at 9:30 p.m. —Grayson Currin
