[INDIE ROCK/POP] + WED., OCT. 25
If tender pop rock is your jam, then, boy, is it a good night to head down to Mr. Roboto Project. Brooklyn’s Strawberry Runners play sweet and airy tunes that pack a secret punch, like “Garden Hose,” off the debut EP In the Garden. The mostly upbeat, but sometimes emo, tunes of local indie rockers Brightside serve as a fine complement. Rounding out the night is the eerie electronic sound of Swampwalk and the angsty energetic Short Fictions.
7 p.m. 5106 Penn Ave., Bloomfield. $8. All ages. www.therobotoproject.com
