Quirky St. Louis quartet So Many Dynamos is always on tour with somebody, whether it’s a Nintendo-core outfit such as Horse the Band or a group that’s a bit more up its stylistic alley, such as nerd-rock heroes Harvey Danger. So Many Dynamos’ tight, entertaining live set certainly reflects this constant pavement-pounding: Drummer Norm Kunstel’s beats stop on a dime in synch with Aaron Stovall’s robot-precise keyboard, and guitarists Ryan Wasoba and Griffin Kay provide plenty of self-deprecating humor and manic thrashing from the sides. The road leads So Many Dynamos to the Jackpot Music Hall (943 Massachusetts in Lawrence) tonight. Horse the Band is among So Many Dynamos’ companions in rock for the all-ages show. Also playing: Heavy Heavy Low Low and those Kansas City purveyors of sludgy party rock Thunder Eagle. Call 785-832-1085 for more information.
