Japanther 

Japanther's last show in New Orleans almost ended with a flying drum kit and a crusade against the venue. The show screeched to a halt almost as soon as the Brooklyn drum-and-bass duo's deafening, lo-fi hip-hop and covered-in-fuzz pop punk hit the stage, propelling instruments toward the crowd and a few unfortunate knees. Only 20 minutes into its already delayed set, the band moved the show to St. Roch Tavern, a cozy armpit of a bar with little elbowroom for its anything-goes dance party. These guys aren't serious rock stars " just a band serious about fun. The latest album, Tut Tut Now Shake Ya Butt, produced by Crass' Penny Rimbaud, barrels through two-minute anthems with Casio keyboards, tape loops and simple sing-along pop revved up like the Ronettes on fire. Ragtime gypsies Why Are We Building Such a Big Ship? and San Diego punks Killer Dreamer open. Tickets $5. — Alex Woodward
