FOUR TET B2B JAMIE XX

Kieran Hebdan, aka Fourtet, jazzy intellectual of the UK bass scene, goes head to head with Jamie xx — yes, of ruminative indie erotics The xx — whose own deep electronic explorations have taken him to the limits of pop. Two biggies, lotta bass.

Fri/22, 10pm-3am, $30–$50. 1015 Folsom, SF. www.1015.com

 

TODD TERJE

Norwegian Terje has updated the classic Scandinavian cosmic disco sound with blorby '80s splashes, piano-lounge mystique, and kids' show theme music nostalgia ("Inspector Norse"). He played here seven years ago in an old gay square dance bar; now he headlines the As You Like It crew's massive fourth anniversary party, with Maurice Fulton, DJ Qu, and a ton more.

Fri/22, 9pm-4am, $20–$30. Public Works, 161 Erie, SF. www.publicsf.com

 

DJ SPRINKLES

"There's a kind of cultural compression going on, similar to audio compression, where everything has to be 'punched up' to the same intensity or people feel lost. What the fuck is so wrong with being lost?" Terre Thaemlitz, aka trans musician and philosopher DJ Sprinkles, told me last year. Then she proceeded to send the Honey Soundsystem party into an intense, wonderfully deep spiral. Now she's back to do it again.

Sat/23, 10pm-4am, $20. F8, 1192 Folsom, SF. www.feightsf.com
