The Underground Horns
“Big Beat”
Playing at: Nublu
(62 Ave. C, L.E.S.)
Get: Tickets ($10 at the door) | Directions

New York City is pulsing with brass bands these days, from Slavic Soul Party’s Balkan groove to Red Baraat’s brass bhangra to the increasing number of New Orleans-style groups playing the streets and subways. The Underground Horns, which will be releasing their second album tonight at Nublu, has forged its own way with a sound that draws from all the aforementioned brass traditions, and synthesizes them with an ecstatic, solo-oriented, almost psychedelic approach. On “Big Beat,” a hypnotizing tuba bass line underscores seven minutes of hard-driving instrumental solos.
