High energy, shimmery, and radio-ready tunes? That sounds like Rochester natives the Doozers, who are doing a damn fine job expanding on the Strokes-sounding strain of quick and cutting indie rock that we never stopped loving. Which makes sense, considering the four-piece started in high school during 2015 and emerged from Rochester’s School of Rock. Last year found the Doozers releasing a handful of catchy AF singles, including “Lemon Poppyseed,” a track that is equal parts Vampire Weekend, Young the Giant, and some surf rock, but remains full-blown Doozers. Then on “Cytoplasm,” they channel festival-favorite Neon Trees, proving that — though the Doozers might have a fireproof formula for danceable, relatable indie tunes — they’re finding ways to infuse their music with an emotive jangle all their own. 248-546-3644

When you hear Ja Rule let out a “Woo! Right back atchya,” you just know that an early 2000s Ashanti banger is about to drop. Since signing to Ja’s Murder Inc. Records at just 21 years old — which is when she released her No. 1 bop “Foolish” and award-winning, self-titled debut record — Ashanti, now 39, is ready to return to her R&B roots. Last year, the “Rock Wit U’’ singer appeared as herself on an episode of the Dynasty reboot on CW, launched a swimwear collaboration with PrettyLittleThing online boutique, and teased new tracks from her forthcoming record, due out this year, marking her first LP since 2014’s Braveheart. Though Ashanti’s breathy tonality may not scale to Jennifer Hudson-level heights, what has set her apart is her “I have a secret” vocals, which, according to a forgetful Ja Rule, may have ended up on a song for Jennifer Lopez? Weird. During an interview with Bravo’s Andy Cohen, Cohen asked Ja about a rumor that suggests Ashanti sang J.Lo’s parts on their 2001 collaboration, “I’m Real.” While Ja may not know if her vocals ended up on the final cut, as Ashanti suggested in 2014, he did say he wrote the track for J.Lo but enlisted Ashanti to demo it as a reference because Ja didn’t have the vocal chops to make it sound enticing. Ashanti stoked these rumors in 2014, adding that it was bittersweet, considering she wanted the song for herself but was flattered that J.Lo ended up using her vocals. Talk about Big Libra Energy.

Charivari Bowl Series

Bowlero Lanes & Lounge 4209 Coolidge Hwy., Royal Oak Greater Royal Oak Area

While it was recently redesigned with a decidedly rock ’n’ roll vibe, Royal Oak’s Bowlero is the perfect home for a new biweekly DJ night hosted by Charivari, the free, three-day electronic music festival set to return to Detroit for its seventh year in August — the groovy lounge calls to mind the nocturnal playboy described in the lyrics of A Number of Names’ proto-techno hit “Sharevari.” Anyway, each night of the Charivari Bowl series features 10 Detroit-based DJs and two stages. Sunday features Mike Brown, Bruce Bailey, Jarsych, Tony Foster, Walter Glasshouse, and Raymond Hill on the Bowling Alley Stage, and Pat Osiris, DJN10se, Pilar Cote, Powdrblu, Mike Rott, Darron Merritt, and DJN10se on the Bar Stage. The event continues on Feb. 9 and 23, and March 8 and 22. (248) 549-7500
