Los Amigos Invisibles, with Trombone Shorty

When: Tue., Feb. 15 2011

Los Amigos Invisibles and Trombone Shorty may not be the most obvious pairing, but it's bound to be a great one. The former is a Venezuelan ensemble that's been making wildly eclectic, often eccentric dance music for nearly two decades. Their 2009 collection, Commercial, won the Latin Grammy for Best Alternative Music Album, and a follow-up, sardonically titled Not So Commercial, is due next month. Troy "Trombone Shorty" Andrews, a current Grammy nominee, is the 25-year-old grandson of New Orleans legend Jessie Hill. He and his band Orleans Avenue specialize in the kind of tough, funk-fueled jazz that would make Miles Davis smile. Find them at 8 tonight at the Bluebird Theatre (3317 E. Colfax Ave., Denver, bluebirdtheater.net); 16-plus, $22.50/adv, $25/door. — Bill Forman
