Poliça, Gardens and Villa 

When: Mon., Oct. 1, 9 p.m. 2012
Price: $12-14

The dance-friendly Poliça emphasizes all that's considered anathema to stalwart guitar-based rock 'n' roll: Lead singer Channy Leaneagh uses lots of Auto-Tune (which, Gayngs associations aside, may explain why vocal manipulation lover Justin Vernon's so big on the group) and their setup consists of keyboard, bass and two drummers, often hammering out the same hulking rhythms for a bit and then going off on their own. There is no guitarist. The result is clean-soaring catchy rock that's pleasing to the pop-minded, for sure, but exciting and just odd enough to grab the other kids, too. With Gardens and Villa. —Brandon Soderberg
