Brave Combo

9 p.m. Friday, November 27. The Gramophone, 4243 Manchester Avenue.

Brave Combo is celebrating its thirtieth anniversary by doing what it's always done: tour. For three decades, the Denton, Texas, band has mixed polka, cumbia and other accordion-driven styles with rock, salsa and anything else that strikes its fancy. The troupe has appeared on the Jerry Lewis telethon and The Simpsons, and recorded polka-ized covers of Jimi Hendrix's "Purple Haze" and the Doors' "People Are Strange," and a cha-cha take on the Rolling Stones' "(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction." Brave Combo has also turned unexpected songs into stomping polkas and done something entirely different; see a freakish, funk-metal version of "The Hokey Pokey." Put simply, it's a unique band of weirdos totally committed to expanding listeners' musical horizons while always keeping the crowd rockin'.
