While fans of Cut Copy - and they are legion - await the Australian electronic group's next album and tour, there's a new EP from bassist Ben Browning to fill the gap. Although it doesn't exactly blaze trails, there's much to like in the funky bass lines and jittery guitar chords (though the glossy, echo-laden synths occasionally take "Lover Motion" further into '70s pop territory). Browning visits U Street Music Hall for a solo DJ slot, and if the sunny, new-wavey single "I Can't Stay" (and its remix by Cut Copy tour DJ Knightlife) is any indication, it will be a night of delightfully retro grooves. Besides, there's nothing to lose: Admission is free for those 21 and older with an RSVP. Volta Bureau's Will Eastman and DJ Remote Ctrl open.
