This week, South Florida is home to a number of solid shows. !!! (Chk Chk Chk) will be at Gramps in Wynwood on Wednesday, and Urban Beach Week kicks off the day after. For those willing to leave Miami and head a little north, the Griswolds and Magic Man are set to light up Culture Room while a slew of indie rockers take over Revolution Live on Sunday for the inaugural Undertow Jam. However, there’s a pair of concerts that might get lost in the shuffle from an under-the-radar band that’s perfect for the Magic City. 

Pompeya are a three-piece outfit that craft effortless dance rock infused with touches of disco, plenty of new wave shine, and a nod towards '90s alternative. The trio has already spent the first half of May in Florida, a natural fit for their music, especially considering their first record was titled Tropical. The band will conclude its Sunshine State residency Memorial Day weekend. They have concerts at Libertine in Miami and Rhythm & Vine in Fort Lauderdale for the inaugural Rhythm Fest. If you’re looking to sweat for another reason other than the unbearable humidity, Pompeya’s kinetic, pulsing synth-pop make the Moscow-based group an unlikely but welcome excuse and a must-see before they take off for cooler climates. 

Pompeya. 11 p.m. Saturday, May 28, at Libertine, 34 NE 11th St., Miami; 305-363-2120; libertinemiami.com. Admission is $10.
