Originally a solo creative outlet for multi-instrumentalist Davey Pierce, Yip Deceiver boasts four members from flamboyant indie-rockers of Of Montreal. Rather than revamp Of Montreal’s theatrical performances, Yip Deceiver — a failed anagram of Pierce’s name — places the audience in the spotlight, fueling insane dance parties with soulful electro-pop in the vein of LCD Soundsystem, Hot Chip and Beck’s “Midnite Vultures.” With a new album planned for early 2012, a follow-up to its debut self-titled EP, Yip Deceiver will cap its national tour — alongside the Absent Center, Eureka Birds and Dead Fame — at Strange Matter on Saturday, Jan. 14, at 9 p.m. $9. 447-4763.
