Groovesect 

As it hovers around a first anniversary as a band, Groovesect is riding high. To celebrate the release of On the Brim, its first full-length album, the band just completed a mini-tour with former JB Horn and Parliament Funkadelic member Fred Wesley, who lent some licks to the record. No shortage of stars in its corner, Groovesect also counts among its members the legendary New Orleans conga player and percussionist Uganda Roberts, who's played with Crescent City greats like drummer Smokey Johnson and bassist Chuck Badie. On the Brim is a stellar first effort, running over with New Orleans-style funk that gives nods to everyone from the Meters to Galactic, with plenty of the latter's surefooted experimentalism. A touch of avant jazz mellows out Groovesect's dirtier funk while launching them into the spaceways. Tickets $5. — Fensterstock
