Oh boy! It’s time for the Dig’s annual roundup of cross-dressing Portland-based pop-tronica outfits with misleadingly vulgar names chosen purely for the fascination with shock value! Ready? Let’s go!

Sure, there’s probably a couple dudes workin’ a whey factory that cart an old casio over to the Roseland Ballroom on weekends and play as “Dickfister,” but honestly, Starfucker is pretty much all the West Coast twitch-fits we need.

Oh, Boston-area poptronica fans … dejectedly slumped in your cardigans, sighs cutting through the thick clove-musk. Will the Hub ever feature an event catered to your interests? Well, now that you mention it, yes, it will. T.T. the Bear’s hosts an evening of visiting talent, showcasing the best in digital-indie from across the nation. From the other Portland, way on past all that nothing, hails the unfortunately named Starfucker! Dutifully representing New England is Dover, N.H.’s Felix and Volcano! And all the way from Austin, Tex., where zany is a valid career choice, is The Octopus Project. [10 Brookline St., Central Sq., Cambridge. 617.492.2327. 8:30pm/18+/$10. ttthebears.com]
