Philadelphia's jam quintet Lotus stitch a quilt of electronica, jazz and funk with organic instrumentation. The result is dance music and jam band combo where house music and drum n' bass have tea with guitars and percussion. They burn up the dance floor one moment and chill in the lounge with ambient orchestral pieces the next. Keyboardist and DJ Michael Christie and his band Telepath will open. 8 p.m. $12-$14.
