Budos Band 

When: Tue., Feb. 21, 9 p.m. 2012
Price: $17
For seven years, the Budos Band have been giving hope to band nerds everywhere: One day, when the braces come off and the acne fades, that trombone might actually be a catalyst, rather than an encumbrance, to getting laid. With the grimiest sounding horns and the tightest percussion, the Budos have created a fantasy of the urban underbelly that sounds sexy and cinematic rather than in need of an intervention. Though it's possible to detect an ever-so-slight trajectory toward rock, their Afro-funk-soul albums are otherwise interchangeable, each just as fiercely efficient as the last. This isn't a criticism, because their songs are never anything but a pleasure to have in your ears. The real mystery is that 10 obvious perfectionists could translate such composed instrumentals into live shows resembling the most gloriously dissolute dance parties. REBECCA WILSON
