Brand New Life, Jonathan Scales Fourchestra, Skylar Gudasz & the Ugly Girls 

When: Fri., March 25, 9:30 p.m. 2011
Price: $5

The Brand New Life is a vibrant, worldly wall of sound—notes fly furiously from sax, clarinet, flute and tuba while a trio of percussionists provides the pulse percolating beneath. Electric guitar and bass give a funky bite to the Greensboro septet's infectiously danceable hybrid of Afrobeat and free jazz. Though his instrumental jams have a touch of tropical flavor, virtuosic steel drummer Jonathan Scales ventures outside the box with his opening Fourchestra. This is a lively, sophisticated jazz fusion. The gorgeous, dreamy folk of Carrboro's Skylar Gudasz and the Ugly Girls is the outlier here; still, Gudasz's soaring songbird lilt will reward those seeking a more gradual start to the party. —Spencer Griffith
