Tomorrow night (Thursday, January 17) the Buccaneer Lounge hosts a diverse triple-bill, pairing up-and-coming New Orleans singer-songwriter Tess Brunet with two excellent locals, Data Drums and the Switchblade Kid.
Brunet (a.k.a. Au Ras Au Ras) was the drummer of the Dax Riggs-fronted group Deadboy and the Elephantmen before striking out on her own. Since then, she's released two fine albums, 2011's sort-of self-titled Au Ras Au Ras and last year's the Great Nothing.
Data Drums is the longstanding project of local musician Chuck Vicious.
Opening act the Switchblade Kid is the latest project from the Angel Sluts' Harry Koniditsiotis.
