9 p.m. Wednesday, April 30. Off Broadway, 3509 Lemp Avenue

In its most idealized form, modern indie-dance music is supposed to embody a youthful spirit of adventure and sense of community. Anyone who's seen Vellela Vellela live can confirm that the ambitious quartet's organic blend of rock, soul and über-positive indie-funk delivers just such curiosity and a communal atmosphere. The audience is a participant during the Seattle band's performance, exuding equal energy toward the performers, and thereby blurring the line between stage and dance floor. Vellela Vellela summons this movement with loads of old-fashioned hand percussion, live bass, vintage organ buzz, first-generation synthesizers and constant instrument trading throughout its frenzied set.
