In music — as with most things — things are cyclical in nature. Witness the popularity of the brass band, an evolution of the New Orleans Second Line style that has caught fire over the last couple of years — so much so that Westword included a “brass band” category in their Best Of issue last year. One of the nominees was the Tivoli Club Brass Band, who drops their debut LP, Get Down To The Brass Tracks at a big release party on April 26, with comedian Adam Cayton-Holland and burlesque violinist troupe Gracie G’night and the Go-Go delights all on the bill.
The Rio Grande have stepped up their game, with the bar formerly tucked away in the back now prominent and inviting, the colors updated, the decor decidedly Mexican uptempo, and street access ready to make the first floor as sexy as the rooftop patio. Oh, and they’re having a grand reopening party tonight, so get ready to fiesta.
One to watch is Cindy Brandle Dance Company’s A World on Fire, premiering April 19 - 20 at The Dairy Arts Center. This work takes on “social privilege, racial discrimination, the #MeToo movement, LGBTQ marginalization, and the constantly evolving antics of the current administration.
