Talk about durability and reliability. Pet Shop Boys just keep on giving their fans the goods, some 27 years into their casual career. Their new, 12th album, Electric, is expansive, mannered techno crafted by a couple of worshipped UK pop veterans that is better than it has any right to be (most musicians by this point in their careers are running on creative fumes). An upbeat affair in contrast to 2012's Elysium, Electric is about as tantalizing a dance record as you could expect from fiftysomething hit-makers. First single "Love Is a Bourgeois Concept" is the perfect PSB track title, and it encapsulates the album's charms with its witty, self-aware lyrics and understatedly ebullient melody. "It's a blatant fallacy," Neil Tennant deadpans, and only a naïf would argue with the man. Expect a night of frictionless, poised dance music for the carefully flamboyant clubber. Paramount Theatre, 8 pm, $35.75–$55.75, all ages.
