E.O.E. 

E.O.E. — which does stand for 'Equal Opportunity Employment" may sound a little familiar to some longtime music fans in New Orleans. That's because it's actually the band formerly known as Atman Roots, the socially conscious (and rather spiritually conscious) world-music fusion outfit that's been based in town for several years pre-K. Its structural style relies heavily on improvisational jazz but is so laidback that the band makes it sound easy; hinting at but stopping short of bragging about the quartet's clearly impressive chops. And the sound is a seamless pastiche of global rhythm with hip-hop beats snaking through Latin jazz and funk blending with reggae. The 2006 album Fortune and Circumstance touches " with irie groove and firmly liberal conviction " on Katrina issues both political and personal, including a mellow, meditative track that may be one of the better commentaries on George W. Bush's presidency yet. It's titled, simply and in patois, 'Him Crazy Man." Tickets $5. " Alison Fensterstock
