Last month, Lafayette's Brass Bed covered Gambit in a story about the band and its contemporaries blasting from the Cajun music capital. Before its summer-long West Coast tour, the band returns to New Orleans tonight for the first time since the April release of The Secret Will Keep You, its debut full-length album for Crossbill Records. The album banks on scorching and sweet pop hooks, earnest lyrics and earworm power pop.
Brass Bed performs at Gasa Gasa (4920 Freret St.) at 9 p.m. Cardinal Sons opens. Tickets $10 at the door.
