It cracks me up every time I hear of bands that give themselves long, convoluted names, like everything else has been done so they have to come up with something raunchy with multiple meanings to get attention. That said, some of them are pretty good.
For those of you not hooked into the San Francisco jazz scene, you probably haven’t heard of Lavay Smith and Her Red Hot Skillet Lickers. But if you’re around here and like the idea of edgy, “provocative” big band, go to Union Square tomorrow night, August 10th, from 6-7:30.
