It’s been a decade since Montreal duo Chromeo debuted with She’s in Control, and (soon to be) four albums later, the pair is still dazzling listeners with its seductive brand of electro-funk. On the forthcoming White Women, which features Toro y Moi, Solange, and Vampire Weekend’s Ezra Koenig, David Macklovitch and Patrick Gemayel take their trademark party-starting synth grooves up a notch. With TOKiMONSTA. The Showbox, 1426 First Ave., 628-3151, showboxonline.com. 9 p.m. SOLD OUT. All ages. AZARIA C. PODPLESKY

Black Label Society finally dropped its much-anticipated studio album, Catacombs of the Black Vatican, this month (and surely Zakk Wylde said Valhalla Java Almighty!). Over the past 15 years, the band has produced some of the best metal this side of Sweden, and Vatican proves yet again why these dudes are considered gods of the genre. With Devil You Know, Butcher Babies. Showbox SoDo, 1700 First Ave. S., 628-3151, showboxpresents.com. 8 p.m. $35. CORBIN REIFF
