“Get up, Get down / Get Up, Get down”….Find yourself humming along to that deliciously addictive single by Sylvan Esso? Good, then we’ve been listening to the same music. Read on for 10 shows happening this weekend in line with that good taste.
#10 #BWSF with Slop Wop & Sir kn8, Raze, more @ Brooklyn Fireproof (119 Ingraham, FRI 7PM, $5 after 8PM)

Get ready to get lifted by sweet tunes from High & Mighty Brass Band, who rock a mix of classic New Orleans Funk, R&B, Afro-Beat and Hip Hop.

#1 Junglepussy, Celeste, Princess Nokia @ The Acheron (SAT 8pm, $10)
MTV just named Junglepussy’s “Nah” as the Ultimate Fall Comedown, so it’s promising that her defensive-yet-intelligent flow (“I seen you eating Micky D’s, know you don’t love yourself / I’m up at Trader Joe’s shopping cart full of health”) is going to catch on real soon. See her, in true BK style, at The Acheron, a mostly metal venue.
