Imagine the progeny of a strange affair between The B-52’s and Of Montreal stumbled into a rave and left with a fuckload of wobbling bass lines and drops. That’s the gist of Crunk Witch, a husband and wife duo from Presque Isle, Maine. Listing track titles such as “Moonbase Blues” and “Clash of the Droids” on 2014’s Heartbeats in Hyperspace, Crunk Witch draws on the genre of bitpop, a style of electronic music that manipulates microchips designed to produce sound in clunky computers and gaming devices like the original Atari. While this 8-bit aesthetic is enough to make nerds swoon, pulsating beats and explosive theatrics outshine Crunk Witch’s nostalgia for Space Invaders and Donkey Kong. San Antonio’s Dawn of Pheonix and Rivers Want rounds out the night’s lineup of electropop madness at Limelight. 9pm, $7, Limelight, 2718 N Saint Mary’s
