8-bit emotion: On an all-electronic bill, Richmond artists Plastic_Pyramid, In Fosa, and Gleam Utility support Pennsylvania musician Tomato Jake on his East Coast tour. His latest record, Commercial Album, features 41 bite-sized songs that seem to end as soon as they start, launching into the next track with little warning. Built around 8-bit synthesizers, the album offers the nostalgia of old video game soundtracks and early electronic music without ever feeling derivative.

Saturday 7/20. $7, 8pm. Twisted Branch Tea Bazaar, 414 E. Main St., Downtown Mall. 293-9947.
