New York’s Anamanaguchi specialize in post-house disco that’s predicated on the hyperactive need for immediate festive release. Its new album, “Endless Fantasy,” (Dream.Hax) swirls with pharmaceutical enhancements invoking the “Tragedy”-era Bee Gees spiraling wordlessly down a particularly deep and spacious ketamine hole. The band brings its fevered melodic intoxications to Strange Matter at 929 W. Grace St. on Thursday, July 25. Comedic rapping waif Kitty Pryde and the Nintendo sound manipulations of Chipocrite open the night of sensory overload with style, hooks and flair. Doors for the 18 and older show open at 8 p.m. Tickets are $10 in advance and $12 at the door. strangematterrva.com.
