Wolfgang Gartner 

9 p.m. Wednesday, May 11. Club Europe, 710 North 15th Street.

Wolfgang Gartner is not to be confused with Amadeus or the scrappy youths from Odd Future and their siren call "Wolf! Gang!" Gartner (real name Joey Youngman) may not be a composer or a hacked-off high schooler, but he has one thing those other famous Wolfgangs don't — a Grammy nomination. The electronic producer and beatsmith got started as a bedroom virtuoso before he even hit puberty; the self-taught Gartner began experimenting with a drum machine and MIDI at age eleven. In 2007, he adopted the Wolfgang moniker and started pumping out electro house in the vein of contemporaries Justice and Deadmau5. Gartner has a fan-fomented sibling rivalry with the latter that hasn't quite fizzled, despite their 2010 collaboration Animal Rights. Gartner's 2011 release Forever is fat with club-rat paeans. Standout "Illmerica" is such an instant classic, you'll swear you've danced to it before.
