9 p.m. Saturday, January 15, at Avant Garden, 411 Westheimer, 832-519-1429 or www.avantgardenhouston.com.
Brooklyn duo Javelin cobbles together boomboxes, broken synths and pop-culture effluvia into a captivating and intensely fun approach to postmodern electronic music that perversely combines discofied funk and fractured hip-hop with gently swaying global-pop melodies and Bacharach-ian arrangements. It is dizzying and discombobulating, but by stacking layers upon layers of goofiness upon their grooves, Javelin delivers a richly rewarding sonic experience that, in concert, transforms into a participatory experience. This may be the only show this week where you're asked to BYOB (Bring Your Own Boombox).
