9 p.m. Thursday
House of Blues, 225 Decatur St., 310-4999; www.hob.com
Packing the most sting in the Brooklyn beehive of electro-influenced dance rockers, Ratatat's all-instrumental duo of Evan Mast and Mike Stroud stretches rubbery guitar grooves and slinky synth figures over a seductive frame of live and preprogrammed drumbeats. The likeminded San Francisco outfit Tussle and Manhattan MC Despot open. Tickets $17-$20.
