Eyehategod with King Louie One Man Band

Ten gallons of crude trouble, Guitar Lightnin' Lee's Thunder Band primes the pump for Delta leveler Little Freddie King in this double feature of downtown-and-out R&B archetypes. At 9 p.m. at Siberia.

George Clinton & Parliament-Funkadelic
Sat.-Sun., Dec. 28-29

The 72-year-old P-Funk founder reigns over his second annual two-night masquerade ball (costumes encouraged).

DJ Soul Sister opens at 10 p.m. Saturday and 8 p.m. Sunday at Tipitina's.

Christian Scott
Sun., Dec 29

Like his uncle Donald Harrison Jr. did early in his career, Christian Scott is living in New York, and like Harrison's Indian Blues, Scott released an album featuring a cover photo of himself in Mardi Gras Indian feathers. But Scott's 2012 release aTunde Adjuah doesn't otherwise incorporate Indian beats and chants, and it has furthered his reputation as one of jazz's young innovators. Scott performs with his quintet at 8 p.m. and 10 p.m. Sunday at Snug Harbor Jazz Bistro.
