Who Dat nation will be out celebrating at The Mint tonight and tomorrow before the football season kicks off because Rebirth Brass Band is coming to town.
The band is making their way up the California coast, with a stop at Saint Rocke on Friday and this weekends Outside Lands Festival in San Francisco too. However, if you want to indulge in them the way they should be enjoyed - you must get to The Mint for one of these two sure to be epic performances presented by Wagatail.
In existence for over 20 years and held down by rhythm and brass alike, including the great trumpet of Kermit Ruffins - this fun funktet is always spectacular. Always possible that you could see a second line rendition and presumably hear some Funky Meters covers. If you shut your eyes at the show, you might just feel like you're standing in the sticky swampy heat of The Maple Leaf. What is certainly guaranteed is that this gang of schooled musicians will bring that New Orleans funk fire for four sets over the next two nights at The Mint leading you to believe that you were sitting on Bourbon street or the set of a shooting of Treme as opposed to a 200 or so capacity concert venue in Los Angeles.
