Rare is the Swedish pop band that can build up the steam to break through to American audiences. ABBA and Ace of Bass come to mind, but unlike their ancestors, the latest Swede sensation MOVITS! sidestep girly disco for a stylish hybrid of swing, jazz and hip-hop. It's a cultural experience to witness the fast-paced flow of three Swedes in tuxedos rapping in their native tongue while reeling through numbers from their Comedy Central-released CD, Äppelknyckarjazz, which literally translates to "Apple swiper jazz." Local acts Joe Pettis and the Falcon Lords warm up the stage. $8-$10. 8 p.m. The Earl, 488 Flat Shoals Ave. 404-522-3950. www.badearl.com.
