Nightlife Highlights: Sex Mob 


October 7. Trumpeter Steven Bernstein’s out-but-danceable, deconstructed-New Orleans jazz unit Sex Mob has been kicking funky butt since 1995. The Grammy-nominated band’s “idea that repertoire can range from Nirvana to Prince, [James] Bond to Basie, and everything in between” wins over everyone from punks to pinstripes. This rare Club Helsinki hit comes on the eve on Bernstein’s 50th birthday, and as many locals also know him from his tenure in the Levon Helm Band, it should be quite a party. John Medeski and Roswell Rudd guest star. (The Black Crowes’ Rich Robinson alights October 13; Club d’Elf with John Medeski reconvenes October 15.) 9pm. $20. Hudson. (518) 828-4800; www.helsinkihudson.com.

  • CD Review: Zs' "XE"

    Higgins and current fellow Zs Sam Hillmer (sax and pedals) and Greg Fox (percussion and electronics) are nothing short of poets of noise. Even in the most assaultive moments on Zs' new record, XE, a sense of delicacy, separation, and emotive purpose prevails.
