Sat., Jan. 15, 9pm. Free. Khyber, 56 S. Second St. 215.238.5888. www.thekhyber.com

Whether you call it glitch or IDM or--as this regular night is rather frostily billed--"forward-thinking electronic music," the budding genre gained more currency than ever last year, culminating in a surprising pervasive presence on critics' year-end lists (and not just Pitchfork's either). And as every weirdo with a beard or harp gets tagged as a disciple of "freak-folk," many have wisely tapped electronic music as true folk music's next logical step, issuing from laptops instead of acoustic guitars. To that end, some kindred spirits--Drop the Lime, Pale and MathHead--will trek down from New York City to sit around the proverbial campfire spitting out their own colorful variations on the genre, in the form of live sets. They'll be joined by Vytear from Philly's own g25 Productions and accompanied by live visuals (sure to be appropriately atmospheric) and the work of DJ Starkey. So slip into that adorable Ghostly International hoodie, climb the stairs to the Khyber's second floor and bliss out. (Doug Wallen)
