New Orleans Second Line Extravaganza
Wednesday, December 27, 8 p.m., Shady Lady, no cover
Throw on your dancing shoes and a handful of beads and welcome the newest New-Orleans style group to town: Dirty Chops Brass Band. The party will kick off at Shady Lady, a bar known for hosting big brass bands. Dirty Chops, along with City of Tress Brass Band and Element Brass Band, will take to the street with music and revelry in true New Orleans fashion. You might not be able to carry around a hurricane like you can down South, but this mashup is as close to the real thing as a California city can get. 1409 R Street, www.facebook.com/dirtychopsbrassband.
