One big show, one smaller With the right song and the right Sound­cloud pro­file, any high schooler is li­able to launch a world tour from the com­fort of his or her par­ents’ house these days. Take Rouen, France’s Me­hdi Ben­jel­loun, a.k.a. Petite Bis­cuit, who re­leased his break-out sin­gle, “Sun­set Lover,” when he was 15 years old. Though well-versed in clas­si­cal mu­sic, Ben­jel­loun quickly took to elec­tron­ica, whip­ping ethe­real am­bi­ent dance mu­sic into a lack­adaisi­cal house hit that’s been streamed on Spo­tify just shy of 200 mil­lion times. Now, at the ripe age of 17, the pro­ducer is bring­ing his chill dance party to the Gothic The­atre on Aug. 8. Dak­tyl will per­form in sup­port. Tick­ets to the show are $18-$25 and avail­able via axs.com. Of all the ques­tions that a group like the punk and R&B out­fit Tai­wan Hous­ing Project raises, one in par­tic­u­lar springs to mind when con­sid­er­ing its Aug. 6 show at the Hi-Dive: How are they all go­ing to fit on stage? To achieve the rhyth­mic hell the group has been rais­ing for the last year, the Phil­a­del­phia band em­ploys seven and some­times eight mem­bers, tak­ing up ev­ery­thing from sax­o­phones to a metal pot. It’ll make for a cozy, if outré, dance party at 300-ish per­son South Broad­way venue, where the band will play cuts from its star­tling de­but full-length, “Ve­blen Death Mask.” Den­ver ex­per­i­men­tal elec­tronic duo Church Fire will per­form in sup­port. Tick­ets are $8-$10 and avail­able via tick­et­fly.com.
