Here we go again: OK Go brings infectious dance pop to the Beacham

Genius power pop quartet OK Go compels equal geek-out reactions to their wildly original and inventive music videos as their swallow-you-whole dance-floor tunes. Their most recent single, “You’re a Fucking Nerd and No One Likes You,” is damn guaranteed to pump up the crowds who turn out to the Beacham when the band plays it live this week (saving you an unnecessary trip to the movies to hear washed-up jokes during Hot Tub Time Machine 2). They aren’t just pop heroes, either – the brainy Chicago rebels figured out they could achieve more on their own and left their cushy major label to release last year’s Hungry Ghosts on their own imprint, Paracadute. The album buzzes a little more than their past records, with a trendy electronic bent to each track that admirably remains forward-thinking despite how used to these production tricks we are by now. Is that what authenticity tastes like?
