Brave Combo, Killer Filler 

When: Thu., Aug. 12, 8:30 p.m. 2010
Price: $12-15

What began as a fascination with oddball music culled from record bins (often on the basis of cover art) evolved during three-plus decades into America's best polka band. Brave Combo has performed its smart, lively originals and inspired polka-fied covers for David Byrne's wedding and at Matt Groening's request on The Simpsons, securing three Grammys along the way. The band blends its traditional sound with elements of Latin music and a modern sensibility reflected in irony-free covers of The Doors, The Rolling Stones and The Who, and the energy's undeniable. Their coup de grace, in fact, is an unstoppable take on James Brown's "Sex Machine." —Chris Parker
