BONERAMA
9 p.m., Sticky Fingerz. $7.

Formed by long-time members of Harry Connick’s band, Bonerama takes pieces of the funk, jazz and brass traditions in New Orleans and points them toward rock ’n’ roll. Even with five pieces of brass, they’re far from a brass band. Four trombonists hold down the band’s frontline, and a Sousaphone player handles low-end, emitting deep, funky notes like a slapped bass. A drummer, on a traditional drum kit, and an electric guitarist round out the line-up. They come to town in support of “Bringing It Home,” their newly released live album recorded at the legendary New Orleans venue Tipitina’s. There’s original material on the album, but it’s the covers that really convey the band’s M.O. The seven-piece takes on Led Zeppelin’s “Ocean” and two songs from “The White Album,” “Yer Blues” and “Helter Skelter.” No meaty guitar riffs here, though — the trombones get to have all the fun.
