Tonight’s show at The Waiting Room kind of sneaked up on me. Long Island band Twin Sister may fancy themselves as shoegaze, but to me they’re more of a dream-pop band. Their 2011 debut full length In Heaven (released on Domino), is gorgeous, lush, female-fronted pop that’s impossible to ignore. Synth-heavy with the occasional glowing guitar line, its disco beats and audio mood lighting would be right at home at a Loom-tastic dance club. Songs like “Bad Street” seem equal parts influenced by Tom Tom Club and latter-year dance-dub Factory Records (see Quando Quando/New Order). For those keeping score, Pitchfork gave the album a 7.8 (here), which instantly put them on the indie radar (of course). Get ready to dance (if you want to). Coney Island dreamers Ava Luna opens. $10, 9 p.m.
