Mike Dillon with Skerik 

Percussionist and vibraphonist Mike Dillon has multiple jazz, electronica, funk and experimental projects under his belt, including stints with famed whackjob Les Claypool of Primus, playing in his side act, the Frog Brigade, plus performing with folk-punk visionary and all-around impresario Ani DiFranco. He's also provided beats and noises for the local cult favorite jazz-funk ensemble Garage A Trois with New Orleans' edgy funk and jazz golden-boy drummer Stanton Moore, hybrid-guitar player Charlie Hunter and one-name-wonder sax-player Skerik. Dillon has several gigs this week to celebrate and promote his new record, Battery Milk (Hyena) with his new funk-based project, Mike Dillon's Go Go Jungle. The shows with Skerik should be looser, funkier versions of the record's contents, sure to be full of jazzy, hip-shaking improvised jams. Tickets $6. — Alison Fensterstock
