New Orleans' Subdudes to Play City Limits on Feb. 27

The Subdudes may not be among the New Orleans musical legends the average Joe could immediately name. But examine the band's track record, which stretches back a couple of decades, and its seamless blend of riveting rock and roll, nimble rhythms, and sinewy roots. It's clear the Subdudes have earned their standing as one of the Crescent City's best and brightest.


For starters, it takes a certain amount of panache to take a scenario

as awful as Hurricane Katrina and translate it into the most basic

human terms. On the band's latest album, Street Symphony -- their first

since that devastating debacle -- they do just that. Here, they employ

their uniquely Southern style and smooth grooves to convey vivid tales

filled with resilience and determination. The result is a series of

insightful yet engaging narratives that spin tragedy into triumph.Yet

for all that reflection, the Subdudes' sound still conveys an innate

sense of celebration. And that's the main reason the Subdudes remain

the cool dudes they are.

The Subdudes. Friday, February 27.

City Limits, 19 Third Ave., Delray Beach. Show starts at 8 p.m. Tickets

cost $23 in advance, $25 at the door. All ages. 561-279-8222;
