Also Playing: New London Fire 

When New Jersey's Sleep Station morphed into New London Fire, they also kicked up the tempos and added groovy electro-pop synths to their mix. Trek to Belleville, Illinois, to see them at the Ground Floor (215 East Main Street; 618-277-1026) on Thursday, March 23 for a mere $5. Show is at 8 p.m. ... Head Automatica don't tour very often, so be sure to boogie on over to the Gargoyle (on the campus of Washington University, Forsyth and Skinker boulevards; 314-935-5917) to catch 'em with trash-glamsters Diamond Nights (pictured) on Monday, March 27 at 7:30 p.m. for $12 — especially since their upcoming CD, Popaganda, is a shamelessly glossy disc of punchy new-wave rock. ... People in Planes really, really like Muse's bombastic, prog-Radiohead-isms and Sting's jazzy pop. See how they incorporate these influences at Mississippi Nights (914 North First Street; 314-421-3853) on Saturday, March 25, at 8 p.m. for just $10.57. — Annie Zaleski
