art and indie rock, 9 p.m.

Melissa McGinley and Chris Padgett, a.k.a. the Stereofidelics, want you to get off your ass and dance. And that’s not a request. It’s an order, albeit one that is delivered with a big dance beat, some super-slinky guitar, a bit of sexy soul appeal, and a whole lotta sass in the lead-off track to the Stereofidelics’ 2013 release Dynamite Fist, “Eye to Eye.” McGinley says, “It’s the best when you look out during that song and even the people who are sitting are still moving around.” And while “Eye to Eye” is sure to get booties bouncing, McGinley and Padgett have to pull off a full-band sound on stage with only two people. “We decided early on that we wanted to stick with a more organic setup, so computers and loops were out. From there, we experimented with some multiple instrument combinations until we found one that stuck,” McGinley says. “Chris sings and plays electric guitar as well as using his feet to play a Moog synth bass hooked up to a floor keyboard, like the kind you see organists playing. I play drums and electric violin — simultaneously a few times throughout a set — and sing.” Impressive. And very, very funky. —Chris Haire TUESDAY
