Moon Hooch

April 11. It's hard not to love a band that's been banned by the NYPD from performing in a Brooklyn subway station. And that's exactly what happened to sax/sax/drums trio Moon Hooch, thanks to their rowdy regular stints at the Bedford Avenue stop in Williamsburg. But the instrumental group, which appears here at Pearl Street Nightclub, has definitely had the last laugh: Since their subterranean days, they've toured with They Might Be Giants, Lotus, and Galactic; performed on NPR; landed their debut in the Billboard Jazz Albums Top 10; and recently released This Is Cave Music, their sophomore album. Embellished with electronica and vocals, the disc is named for the term the group uses to describe their sound: "like house music, but more primitive, jagged, and raw." (Consider the Source jams April 3; World Inferno Friendship Society burns April 25.) 9pm. $12.50, $15. Northampton, Massachusetts. (413) 584-7771; Iheg.com.
