Deke Dickerson, Two Man Gentlemen Band 

When: Sat., March 2, 9 p.m. 2013
Price: $15
The joke with Andy Bean and the Councilman—otherwise known as the Two Man Gentlemen Band—is that though their general dispositions earn their gentlemanly moniker, their music is a tongue-in-cheek exposition of adolescent revelry. Their most recent album, Two at a Time, for instance, relishes such immature subject matter as cheese and crackers ("Cheese and Crackers"), peeping girls in their bathing suits during a pool party ("Pool Party"), and girls that taste like pork chops ("Pork Chops"). But set against the duo's jazz-swing foundation, every one of their songs makes me want to cut the nearest rug to shreds. The band's set at Pickathon 2012 was well received, and the band has been busier than ever bringing their juke-joint revival to clubs all over the country. Duff's Garage is almost too perfect a venue for this duo; they're also playing Miz Kitty's Parlor at the Mission earlier this evening, and Sunday afternoon at the Secret Society as part of the Portland Lindy Exchange.
