The Dead Kenny G’s. Great name. Dead Kennedys …Kenny G … get it? They’re basically an all-star modern/improv band doing “funky deconstruction of jazz” is a rough way. “The hair is long, the perms are tight, and the DKG’s are propped up in their jazz coffins, ready to tear you a new jazz face,” say they.

[image-1]The core lineup features three members of Critters Buggin’: sax player Skerik (also of Les Claypool’s band, Syncopated Taint Quintet), percussionist Mike Dillon (Les Claypool, Hairy Apes BMX, GoGo Jungle) and bassist Brad Houser (ex-Edie Brickell & The New Bohemians). Jazz fiends lookee here: they’ll be in town for a wild jam-out at the Pour House on Tuesday Oct. 9.
