Chairlift, Jonti, Gotye

[MUSIC] Friday, Sept. 7

While most ticketholders will be at the House of Blues waiting for the moment when “Someone That I Used to Know” is performed by headliner Gotye, hopefully a few knowing souls will attend for the very-worthy openers: Chairlift, the Brooklyn duo that consistently puts out complex yet sublime synthpop (you’ve probably hear its single “Bruises”), and Jonti, a South African-cum-Australian-cum-Angeleno experimental pop musician who is as inspired by underground bass/low-end music as he is The Beach Boys. The Top 40 crowd is in for a surprise. 9 p.m.; House of Blues, 3950 Las Vegas Blvd. South, 632-7600, $65-$100.
