The Studio at Colton Theater, 2300 St. Claude Ave., 822-8281; www.backbeatfoundation.org
The Backbeat Foundation anchors its Jazz Fest concert series with the Austin, Texas-based ensemble and sometime Prince backing band, which nabbed a 2009 Grammy nod for Sonidos Gold (High Wire Music), an irresistible blender of Latin funk, Tropicália psych/rock and cumbia dance. Brownout, Big Sam's Funky Nation and Soul Rebels Brass Band open. Tickets $20.
