Club lullabies

Halifax/Montreal-based duo Purity Ring is comprised of Corin Roddick and Megan James, formerly of indie rock outfit Gobble Gobble. They trade in dance club lullabies and haunting electro-pop, with influences ranging from airy ’90s R&B to grinding modern hip hop. The result has garnered wide critical praise and a spanking new record deal, not to mention a hefty amount of buzz. The pair embarks on its second headlining tour to support the recent album Shrines.

Monday 1/28 $13-15, 8pm. Jefferson Theater, 110 E. Main St., Downtown Mall. 594-5899.
