Christian Scott aTunde Adjuah
Tue. Oct. 24 | New Orleans trumpeter Christian Scott aTunde Adjuah has developed his "stretch music" ethos, expanding jazz beyond its self-imposed boundaries. His massive Centennial trilogy (Ruler Rebel, Diaspora, The Emancipation Procrastination, all out this year) is his examination of 100 years of jazz, where it came from and where it's going. NPR's Jazz Night in America presents the show at 7:30 p.m. at the New Orleans Jazz Market.

Wed. Oct. 25 | The New York quartet fuses progressive rock, jazz, funk and hip-hop in spacey explorations that have made all-instrumental albums such as 2016's Sir Nebula popular with jam band fans. Dynamo opens at 9 p.m. at Republic.

Fri. Oct. 27 | Texas trio Khruangbin drugs Thai-inspired funk and soul into a blissful midcentury-lounge subconsciousness, wherein the 40-minute "continuous mix" that closes 2015 LP The Universe Smiles Upon You (Late Night Tales) becomes its own disorienting beginning and end. The Shacks open at 10 p.m. at One Eyed Jacks.

City of Caterpillar, Majority Rule and pg. 99
Mon. Oct. 30 | A holy trinity of hardcore punk bands from the fertile valley of Sterling, Virginia descends on its sister city New Orleans to relive the heyday of late-'90s and early 2000s punk and all its emotional, sweaty chaos. Louisiana's Thou joins the bill at 7 p.m. at Zeitgeist Multi-Disciplinary Arts Center.
