Ben Klock. With My Favorite Robot. Thursday, December 5, 11 p.m., Treehouse, 323 23rd St., Miami Beach; 305-614-4478; Tickets cost $10-$20 plus fees via Ages 21 and up. A true master, Ben Klock combines an "unexacting fusion of quantum jumps [with] effortless melodies.". Guess that versatility must be why the Berliner is considered to be "one of the most significant characters in techno's recent history."
