You won't need an interpreter to be rocked by Tokyo's Polysics. The quartet sings many a tune in its native tongue, but they all translate into kick-ass jams. Polysics are the Japanese version of Devo and borrow heavily (but tastefully) from their jumpsuit/energy dome-sporting counterparts. The two-male, two-female crew attacks synth-heavy new wave with an energy that would make Mark Mothersbaugh and the gang proud. Jaguar Love and Black Gold are also on the bill. 7:30 p.m. The Meridian, 1503 Chartres. For information, call 713-225-1717 or visit www.meridianhouston.com. $12 to $15.
Sun., Oct. 26, 7:30 p.m., 2008
