Matterhorn and Edison, April 1, PalmerCash and Neurolux 

Electronic music has always sounded good. But the frequent lack of any performance value in watching someone hit play on a sampler or the space bar on a laptop crippled its live credibility.

But artists like New York's Edison, who will be at Neurolux on Thursday, are doing something about that. Edison keys his sounds live on stage in real-time rather than as loops, letting his fingers dance across the sampler with the speed of a stenographer or a classical pianist, the keys glowing bright red from his touch. It's more than just an enthralling performance, it's the tipping point that may earn electronica the live performance cred it has struggled with for so long.

With DJ Pain and Sir Realest. 6 p.m., FREE, in-store at PalmerCash, 807 W. Idaho St., palmercash.com; 8:30 p.m., $5, Neurolux, 111 N. 11th St., neurolux.com.
