If the moniker for the combustible punk jazz trio The Dead Kenny Gs doesn't say it all upon initial glance, a first listen to their new album Operation Long Leash quickly makes their intentions clear.

Saxophonist Skerik, bassist Brad Houser and drummer/percussionist Mike Dillon (3/4 of the legendary Critters Buggin') are committed to musical subversion of the highest order. Exploring a muse obsession of musical styles and sonic colors, The Dead Kenny Gs have both the courage and the chops to realize their wildest aural fantasies. One moment they draw inspiration from punk legends The Minutemen, the next finds them embracing the spirit of jazz giant Rahsaan Roland Kirk and yet another finds the influence of indie rock progenitors Deerhoof; all the while sounding purely DKGs.

To further that extent, it's not just music informing the trio's voice, but a keen understanding of political conspiracy in American history. The album's title, Operation Long Leash, comes from the clandestine CIA operation in the late ¬Ëœ40s to fund Abstract Expressionism as a means for Western culture to undermine the rigid, confined and conformist ideals of the Soviet Union during the early years of the Cold War.

    I used to play the sax and think Kenny G is cool (because he can circular breathe). It is also my birthday on Saturday and I like the idea of punk.

    I wanna go because for years (when I was a college DJ), I claimed there was something called Punk Jazz, and no one believed me. Now I’m in a Punk Jazz band, and it turns out there’s another one in town.

    Bestowing unto me the tickets free shall grant to thee eternal access to my very portland composting toilet, which is not smelling as good now that the weather is warmer. Hence, I need a reason to get out. And I love me some distorted sax!

    Skerik is my favorite sax player!

    I’ve seen all three musicians in different bands but never together in this trio which I’m really excited to hear Saturday :)

    If you won, congrads. If you didn’t win this contest, fork out 10.00 tonight or you will truly feel the pains of losing.
