Moon Hooch Staff Pick

When: Tue., March 10, 9 p.m. 2015
Price: $13-$23
Made up of two saxophonists and a drummer, Moon Hooch got their start performing raucous and playfully chaotic jazz-dance music on New York City subway platforms with aplomb. Now, they're taking their dance party on tour to promote their September 2014 release, This is Cave Music. Moon Hooch's music is reminiscent of jazz-band improvisation, but the EDM influence—the gradual heat-up and repetitive, steamy hooks—is there. Relentless jungle drumming replaces the straight bass beat of club dance music. Moon Hooch don't play subway platforms anymore (the NYPD banned them), but videos of the subway dance parties are still online (as a tribute, the first 15 seconds of their first album is a woman making an announcement about the L train). Fans of jazz and ravers of EDM, shake hands; you're about to meet at the brassy and bold blowout that is Moon Hooch. Kris Lager Band opens. (Tiffany Frandsen)
