JAZZ TRIBUTE TO MILES DAVIS AND JOHN COLTRANE
9 p.m. Ferneau. $10-$15.

Are you one of those unfortunate types who think avant-garde jazz is boring or overly intellectual or impenetrably cacophonous? Then do yourself a favor and go listen to "Africa/Brass" by the John Coltrane Quartet and "In a Silent Way" by Miles Davis, then come back and finish reading this. Go ahead, I'll wait.

There. See? You've just experienced indescribable beauty and wonder expressed through the genius of two of the truly towering figures of music. You're welcome. If, though, these albums leave you unmoved, then I suggest you give up on music and move on to a career in debt collection or right-wing political commentary or some similar pursuit that doesn't require the having of a soul.

    You've got to figure that a band from frozen-ass Winnipeg is just gonna be way gnarlier and tougher than a band from some sun-kissed tropical clime where people wear tank tops and flip-flops year-round.
