The Hot at Nights 

When: Thu., April 19, 9 p.m. 2012
Price: $7-10

The Hot At Nights' progressive jazz results from the sweltering synergy of virtuoso guitarist Chris Boerner, saxophonist Matt Douglas and drummer Nick Baglio. Fresh off a national tour with Nicolay (the producer half of The Foreign Exchange), on which they played at the prestigious Blue Note in New York City, the band has a free-to-download Shibuya Session EP that would likely appeal to fans of Robert Glasper's electronic explorations. Boerner gets extended range from an eight-string guitar, "sort of a hybrid of bass and guitar smashed together," he says. With pop leanings ranging from Radiohead to Roxette, the trio celebrates catchy hooks and visceral grooves with an attitude that remains playfully serene. —Sylvia Pfeiffenberger
