Rebirth Brass Band with Glen David Andrews
Thu. Nov. 27 | With solid albums out, both the Rebirth Brass Band (Move Your Body) and Glen David Andrews (Redemption) have plenty for which to be thankful this year. They hold their annual holiday throwdown at 10 p.m. at The Howlin' Wolf.

Crushed Out
Fri. Nov. 28 | Brooklyn husband-and-wife duo Moselle Spiller and Franklin Hoier take the westerly pursuit of surf rock and relocate it to the inner boroughs. Their third album as Crushed Out, Teeth (Cool Clear Water), arrived in September. Jordan Prince & the Fifth Men open at 10 p.m. at Gasa Gasa.


Cedric Burnside Project
Sat. Nov. 29 | Grandson of blues legend R.L. Burnside, Cedric Burnside entered the family business, but expands on hill country blues by adding funk and R&B. The band also features his uncle, Garry Burnside. Gravy opens at 10 p.m. at Tipitina's.


James Hall
Sat. Nov. 29 | Talking Freedom With the Jailer, the third solo LP from the Pleasure Club and Futura Bold bandleader, is a pristine, all-acoustic whisper that follows the stripped-down lead of the James Hall Duo (with Bruce Butkovich) and spotlights his resonant, cavernous voice. At 10 p.m. at the Circle Bar.

Kevin Gates
Sat. Nov. 29 | Rapper Kevin Gates has blazed a two-pronged mixtape assault — hailing from Baton Rouge and birthplace New Orleans — growing his syrupy, growling flow over a dozen mixtapes since 2007, including his most recent, 2014's Luca Brasi 2. Rap's upperclassmen take note — Gates was named one of XXL magazine's Freshmen Class of 2014. At 9 p.m. at The Howlin' Wolf.

Mammoth Grinder
Sun. Nov. 30 | What's in a name? Austin's current kings of bone-crushing metal deliver as described. On 2013's Underworlds, Mammoth Grinder plows through Texas-sized riffs with head-banged nods to '80s thrash, Swedish death metal and hardcore punk. Cannabis Corpse headlines and Inanimate Existence and Six Pack open at 10 p.m. at Siberia.
