Few artists are capable of making great dance music — funky club-floor anthems that mix disco, house, dub, and electro. Even fewer are six-piece indie-rock bands that absolutely kill it onstage. Funky dance-punk troupe !!! (commonly known as Chk Chk Chk) have transformed rock clubs into raves spots for more than a dozen years now under the leadership of Nic Offer, who has some of the sweetest moves you’ve ever seen. “Dance music always hits me immediately,” says Offer. “I was in a punk band years ago, and that gave me the same cathartic release at that age.” !!!’s fourth album, the recently released Strange Weather, Isn’t It?, features doses of electro R&B (“Steady As the Sidewalk Cracks”), synth-goth (“Jump Back”), and psychedelic pop (“Jamie, My Intentions Are Bass”) that transport fans, no matter where they are, to fog-filled club floors. The band’s live shows are dance-till-you-drop parties. “I can’t describe what it’s like to see us live, so just go ahead and believe whatever rumors you may have heard,” says Offer. “All I can say is we give you everything. That’s 110 percent, every show.” !!!, with Fol Chen, play the Beachland Ballroom at 9 p.m. Tickets: $18, $16 in advance. —Keith Gribbins
