9 p.m. Discovery Night Club. $10.

Eliot Lipp has spent the last decade-plus hopping around the country, honing his craft in some of the happening-est cities for electronic dance music. Over that time, Lipp has released seven albums and collaborated with a grip of other hot names in the EDM milieu.

His most recent album, last year's "Shark Wolf Rabbit Snake," was released on Pretty Lights Music, which is, perhaps not surprisingly, operated by hugely popular DJ Pretty Lights, a.k.a. Derek Vincent Smith. In addition to having one of the best album covers I've seen in a while, the record showcases Lipp's smorgasbord approach. It's still largely sample-based fare steeped in hip-hop and techno, but all sorts of other influences — drum & bass, jazz fusion, '80s pop — bubble to the surface, seamlessly meshing with the other sounds.

In October, Jay Z's Life + Times blog premiered Lipp's new single "Wonderland." Lipp's been at it for a minute now and has a considerable following. But with this latest long-player, it seems like he's on the verge of breaking out in an even bigger way. Don't let this be one of those "should've-seen-him-back-then" shows you'll be kicking yourself for skipping after he's blown up.

In addition to the Discovery show, he performs Thursday at George's Majestic Lounge in Fayetteville, with Wookie Disco, Tilly Time and Carson Smith, 9 p.m., $13.

    You've got to figure that a band from frozen-ass Winnipeg is just gonna be way gnarlier and tougher than a band from some sun-kissed tropical clime where people wear tank tops and flip-flops year-round.
