Soundtracking everything from Snooki & JWoww’s Jersey escapades to the scene in Girls where Hannah puts on fishnet and flails around a city club, Icona Pop’s “I Love It” came out of nowhere—or more precisely, Sweden—to become one of the biggest dance songs of 2012, bursting with aggressive energy and IDGAF attitude. The duo behind the music, meanwhile, has parlayed its success into an opening slot on Passion Pit’s recent stadium tour, performances on Dancing With the Stars and Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, and tonight’s show at Stage 48, where radio station WKTU builds anticipation for its annual summer bash. Just don’t wear any fishnets. With Krewella, the Disco Fries, and Nikki Williams.
