Pitchblak Brass Band

TREE PALMEDO
8 pm, Wednesday August 27 | $10.
Star Theater
13 NW 6th Ave.
 

[HIP-HOP TUBA] The brass band is coming back, and not just in New Orleans. Though it’s just one of many young drum-and-brass units funkin’ up Brooklyn with rapturous energy, PitchBlak Brass Band has found a special niche by focusing solely on hip-hop. Part of this means placing the horn section in the back of the mix and adding guitar—a non-traditional move for a brass band. But it also means adding blistering horn solos and chorale-like interludes between the verses—which, by the way, are rapped by the horn players.
