Fred Falke and The Knocks 

When: Fri., Oct. 18, 9 p.m. 2013
Price: $20
Some electronic musicians seek to push the genre into new and unexplored territories. Not Fred Falke. For the last decade, the French house music producer has been making giddy, unapologetically lighthearted nu-disco dance music, with extremely fun remixes of pop songs by Robyn, Katy Perry, Lana Del Rey, and Dido and indie-rock gems by Grizzly Bear and The Whitest Boy Alive. His own material is equally great. Listening to his 2011 album, Part IV, is the sonic equivalent of speeding down the Pacific Coast Highway at sunset with the top down: carefree, adrenaline-fueled, and invigorating (and, yes, a bit cliché). In short, it’s just about everything one could want out of dance music. At his upcoming appearance at Mezzanine (444 Jessie St., San Francisco), he’ll be joined by The Knocks, an up-and-coming duo that makes electronic music in the same vein as Falke, and NITEPPL, a self-described “interstellar disco-opera” DJ based in San Francisco.
