Circle Bar, 1032 St. Charles Ave., 588-2616
Fresh off an East Coast tour with fellow locals Silent Cinema, Bernard Pearce's One Man Machine project — actually a several-men machine, now fleshed out with the Powers That Be surname — takes New Orleans funk, turns it on its ear and gives it one hell of a trippy wet Willy. The Other Planets opens. Free admission.
