Boston’s Hooray For Earth play contagious and entrancing dance tunes that compare to breakthrough troupes MGMT and Ratatat. The quartet’s newest EP, Momo, is a sporadic concoction of new wave, indie and hip-hop with tight pop arrangements and a grungy finish, that can easily hypnotize listeners into busting a move. Hooray For Earth opens for west coast indie rockers, Admiral Radley at Bowery Ballroom Aug. 20. Doors are 8 p.m. 18+. $16.
