BORGORE
8 p.m., Revolution. $5-$10.

It's appropriate that the group putting on this show calls itself “The School of Dub.” Because there's nothing more spectral than electronic music. We need someone to walk us through. This particular “school” keeps it parochial; it's focused solely on dubstep, the genre built around wobbly, half-time rhythms that emerged in London in the early 2000s. Dark, dissonant and massively bass heavy, it's a sound, the Fader said recently, “made almost solely for dudes to bang heads, let off steam and feel awesome about life.” Dudes should be out in full force on Thursday for Israeli producer Borgore. The young, Diplo-endorsed DJ is touring the States for the first time behind “Ice Cream Man,” a mixtape that features, in addition to his own tracks, remixes of songs by Dr. Dre, Wiley and Britney Spears. You've never heard Brit-Brit until you've heard her try to compete with a bassline that sounds like the voice of the robots of the apocalypse. Stepchild, J-Low, Kinkade and Sleek open.
