Thursday, March 15 Miss Tess and the Bon Ton Parade

with the Oak Hill Drifters

9 p.m.

Will's Pub

1042 N. Mills Ave.



The often raucous Will’s Pub will have to break out the blue and sepia light gels to set the proper mood for this blues, jazz and ragtime-inspired group whose sound was self-defined by the title of their 2007 album Modern Vintage. The NYC-based band pulls out all the instrumental stops – archtop guitar, upright bass, snare brushes – to invoke a barn-storming Americana that feels best suited to Charleston-dancing sailors on shore-leave

in the 1930s. Most importantly, frontwoman Miss Tess brings a fiery commitment to the proceedings and a take-it-or-leave-it attitude that sells the band’s throwback vibe as more than just nostalgia chic. – Justin Strout
