Love” Dutton, drummer Jeffrey Clemens and upright bassist James Prescott—rebooted to record their seventh album, 2014’s Sugar. Hailed as a soulful return to form, the 20th anniversary effort features guest appearances from Ben Harper, Los Lobos guitarist David Hidalgo and Rolling Stones collaborator Merry Clayton of “Gimme Shelter” fame.   Since landing on MTV in the ‘90s with “Cold Beverage,” Philly-based hip-hop blues outfit G.

                            Sixty-three years before The Daily Show, 39 years before George Carlin’s Class Clown and 30 freaking years before Mort Sahl took to reading the Warren Report onstage, Groucho, Chico, Harpo and Zeppo Marx heaved 68-minutes’ worth of monkey wrenches at the war machine, many of which can still be heard grinding gears today. With biting satire, surreal physical comedy, Shakespeare-class wordplay and indescribable nonsense, the Brothers Marx fight the power so savagely that human civilization (not to mention the shared reality it presupposes) is severely bruised by the incidental blows.

                            Charlie Robison’s most recent album—last year’s High Life—is a collection of covers, featuring the songs of Doug Sahm, Kinky Friedman and Bob Dylan, but it’s not a sign the Bandera-raised singer-songwriter is retiring into irrelevance. High Life instead finds Robison attempting to heal after leaving his own blood on the tracks with 2009’s Beautiful Day, recorded in the wake of his divorce from Dixie Chick Emily Robison (née Erwin). Whether singing his own songs or covers, the straightforward sincerity and Texas grit in his lived-in voice only become more meaningful as years pass.

                            From slow, pounding drone metal to sludgy takes on Rollins Band sermons, Power-Take-Off’s This Is Late on Learning Curve Records runs the gamut on noisy guitar music. Also on Minneapolis’ Learning Curve, The Grasshopper Lies Heavy’s recent All Sadness, Grinning into Flow is a torrent of unexpected sounds pulled from the six-string. From peeling drones that recall The Warriors soundtrack to all-out shred-a-thons like the nine-minute “Marathon II,” TGLH’s second release is a stunner of a sophomore effort. With Baltimore noise trio Multicult and SA synth deconstructionists Massiver.

                            Datpiff.com is awesome and free, but their most-listened-to mixtapes currently include five from Lil Wayne and three from Wiz Khalifa, so those seeking the newest thing in hip-hop might be better off going outside. Art of War challenges MCs and beat-makers to deliver the goods live in original-track battles. Not all will be good, but some will be great and you probably never would’ve thought to Google any of them. That goes triple for break dancing and graffiti, well represented here but mostly discovered online via YouTube roulette. $8-$12, 8pm-2am Friday, 3pm-2am Saturday, The White Rabbit, 2410 N St. Mary's; $5, 8pm-2am Sunday, Limelight, 2718 N St. Mary’s.

                          • Power-Take-off & The Grasshopper Lies Heavy

                            From slow, pounding drone metal to sludgy takes on Rollins Band sermons, Power-Take-Off’s This Is Late on Learning Curve Records runs the gamut on noisy guitar music. Also on Minneapolis’ Learning Curve, The Grasshopper Lies Heavy’s recent All Sadness, Grinning into Flow is a torrent of unexpected sounds pulled from the six-string. From peeling drones that recall The Warriors soundtrack to all-out shred-a-thons like the nine-minute “Marathon II,” TGLH’s second release is a stunner of a sophomore effort. With Baltimore noise trio Multicult and SA synth deconstructionists Massiver.

                            Art of War 8/31 8:00PM
                             

                            Datpiff.com is awesome and free, but their most-listened-to mixtapes currently include five from Lil Wayne and three from Wiz Khalifa, so those seeking the newest thing in hip-hop might be better off going outside. Art of War challenges MCs and beat-makers to deliver the goods live in original-track battles. Not all will be good, but some will be great and you probably never would’ve thought to Google any of them. That goes triple for break dancing and graffiti, well represented here but mostly discovered online via YouTube roulette. $8-$12, 8pm-2am Friday, 3pm-2am Saturday, The White Rabbit, 2410 N St. Mary's; $5, 8pm-2am Sunday, Limelight, 2718 N St. Mary’s.
