The Swinehounds
Downstairs FREE 9pm

Duke Ellington said there’s only two kinds of music: good music, and the other kind. And then there’s the Swinehounds. The other other kind. A little bit of rag, a little bit of stride. A little bit of slink and a little bit of stomp. A wailing horn and a weeping piano, a walking bass and a sliding trombone, it’s New Orleans by way of Tin Pan Alley and stopping off at every dive bar along the way. Make a joyful noise. And if you see it cheaper, buy it
