Friday To-Do: Sir Threadius Mongus

SIR THREADIUS MONGUS
9 p.m., The Afterthought. $7.

This Tulsa, Okla., jazz group was slated to play The Afterthought this February, but, when a couple of members couldn't make the trip at the last minute, the night turned into a three-man session. Fine, no doubt, but a minor bummer nevertheless. Sir Threadius Mongus' 2006 album, "This is Sir Threadius Mongus," is a stellar document of the left-field six-piece and one that's caught on with a number of people around town. (Read: my friends that I've shoved it upon, pretty much threateningly.) Imagine Lena Horne and Captain Beefheart running into each other in a backwoods cabin jam session. Spectacularly, such a proposition manages to come off as totally accessible and not particularly an endeavor in difficult listening. This make-up gig is months in the making, not to mention one you won't catch us missing.

Check it out: "Gone Lessie Ornithespie"
