September 2. Semi-local old-timey jazz ’n’ blues band Tuba Skinny, which slides into the Colony Cafe this month, has certainly been making the rounds, honking and crooning its way around the East Coast and New England even down to the music’s source of New Orleans, where the Dresden Dolls’ Amanda Palmer spied the seven vagabonds busking in the street and invited them to open for her band. The ensemble’s third and newest recording, Rag Band, once again casts singer Erika Lewis’s smoky voice over trumpet, washboard, tenor banjo, cornet, piano, trombone, clarinet, acoustic guitar, and, yes, tuba. Hot-cha! (Gus Mancini and the Clearlight Ensemble, Tim Moore, and others shine September 8; Salted Bones spice things up September 21.) Call for time and ticket price. Woodstock.
