Nobody can accuse Vagabond Swing
of false advertising. As its name suggests, the Lafayette, Louisiana, group cooks up a funky mix of Depression-era sounds: ragtime, bluegrass and spunky jazz. The group is joined tonight at the Brick by Jorge Arana Trio
, a local outfit that plays a kind of extremely loud jazz built from polyrhythmic drumming, screeching guitars and fat, jam-band-style bass lines.
Friday, January 25, at the Brick, 8 p.m.
