PORTLAND – Part glam-rock, part geek-rock, OK Go will bring its unusual dress sense and energetic dance routines to Port City Music Hall Friday, March 13.

OK Go toured the United States in early 2000 as the house band for “This American Life.” It commanded worldwide attention with its wildly successful music videos, which feature the entire band executing N’SYNC-style choreography with sardonic accuracy. Videos for “A Million Ways” and “Here It Goes Again” have collectively garnered more than 49 million views worldwide. “Here It Goes Again” won a Grammy for Best Short-Form Music Video in 2007.

Making up OK Go are Damian Kulash, lead vocals and guitar; Tim Nordwind, bass guitar and backing vocals; Dan Konopka, drums and percussion; and Andy Ross, keyboards, guitar and backing vocals.

Also performing will be the Brooklyn-based band Longwave and Oppenheimer, an indie pop electronica band from Belfast, Northern Ireland.

This is an 18-plus, chem-free show.

Longwave performs a form of indie-rock that Rolling Stone describes as psychedelic balladry, electro weirdness, anthems and rave-ups. The band is currently on tour promoting its most recent album, “Secrets are Sinister.”

Inspired by their mutual love for Moog synthesizers, vocorders and airhorns, Shaun Robinson and Rocky O’Reily formed Oppenheimer in late 2004. The group has toured with They Might Be Giants, Regina Spektor and Architecture in Helsinki, and has been featured in TV shows “Ugly Betty” and “Gossip Girl.”

Tickets to the 9 p.m. concert are $16 in advance, $18 at the door. Port City Music Hall is at 504 Congress St. Tickets are available at www.portcitymusichall.com and all Bull Moose music stores. For more information, call 899-4990.
