Dead Kenny G's 

When: Thu., Jan. 19, 9 p.m. 2012
Price: $8-10

If you read "The Dead Kenny G's" and instantly decide that, like their name, the band behind it is probably partially brilliant and somewhat terrible, your instinct is absolutely correct. Built of jam-world stars Skerik, Mike Dillon and Brad Houser, The Dead Kenny G's flip between dank jazz nuggets and somewhat pedantic noise outbursts without warning, cashing out very long sets with variations on a joke you get as soon as you tease out the valences of their name. Beyond the silliness, though, these are serious players with long résumés who, in spite of themselves, occasionally deliver moments of undeniable power. —Grayson Currin
