Lettuce with Motet
Thu. Feb. 8 | Lettuce, the jazz-tinged grooving funk band born in Boston, has local connections with New Orleans via trumpeter Eric "Benny" Bloom and vocalist Nigel Hall. The band released the jazz fusion album Witches Stew in November. Jazz funk outfit Motet opens at 10 p.m. at Joy Theater.

Sexy Dex and the Fresh and Boyish Charm
Thu. Feb. 8 | Following their delirious funk tape Plus One Edition, the New Orleans futurist Revolution-aries are turning 2018 purple alongside Boyish Charm, Ryan Rowley's ultra-brooding, dreamy post-punk outfit. Raspy Economie and DJ Heelturn open at 10 p.m. at Gasa Gasa.

Sleigh Bells
Fri. Feb. 9 | The Brooklyn-based noise pop band is on tour following the November release of Kid Kruschev, a frenzied, lo-fi blitz condensed into seven tracks. Sunflower Bean opens at 8:30 p.m. at Republic.

Maceo Parker and Helen Gillet
Fri. Feb. 9 | As a longtime saxophonist alongside both James Brown and intergalactic funk collective Parliament Funkadelic, Maceo Parker returns to New Orleans with opener Helen Gillet, whose layered cello compositions take a different path to the cosmos. At 11 p.m. at Tipitina's.

Exhorder
Mon. Feb. 12 | Long-dormant thrash metal monster Exhorder has this reunion thing down — the criminally unsung New Orleans outfit reformed in 2009 at Southport Hall, only to disband again the next year. Better luck this time. At 7:30 p.m. at Southport Hall.

Grails
Mon. Feb. 12 | After five years and down to three players, Portland, Oregon's Grails returned last year carrying Chalice Hymnal (Temporary Residence), another mysterious, wordless testament to the unimportance of musical genres. TVP opens at 9 p.m. at Gasa Gasa.
