Dirty Dozen Brass Band
Makin’ it do what it do for 35 years
By Jessica Cassyle Carr
Baritone sax player and Dirty Dozen Brass Band founding member Roger Lewis has made a 35-year career out of making the New Orleans brass band tradition vibrate at a different level. His group brought club music—bebop, swing and blues, that is—to streets previously filled with repertoires of hymns and proto-jazz, essentially modernizing the brass band.

Vampires Everywhere! • rock • Consider Me Dead • Set to Stun
By August March
Metalcore masters Vampires Everywhere! will be rising from their decrepit coffins for a gig at The Co-Op on Tuesday, Dec. 1. The project of Michael Orlando, VE! are proponents of a sick sound that craftily combines aspects of goth, industrial and horror punk into a smotheringly propulsive sonic experience that can be freaky and frightening or acutely alluring depending on the internal chemical composition of each of their millions of stunned listeners. Check out the video for “Drug of Choice” for further evidence of the outfit's crepuscular commitments. Arizona electro-popsters Consider Me Dead and “post-sci-fi hardcore” trio Set To Stun (from El Lay of course) open. This all ages show at an alcohol- and drug-free venue costs $13 and begins at 6pm.
Andrew Jackson Jihad • folk-punk at Launchpad
Mike Linden • acoustic rock at Molly's Bar
