The toe-tapping, five-piece band Carrie Nation & the Speakeasy bills its sound as brass ‘n’ grass with a mix of punk and circus music. The band derives its namesake from a Kansas Temperance radical who chopped up bars with a hatchet in the early 20th century. The Wichita Eagle reports the musicians play “at break-neck speed with melodies and chord progressions that call to mind everything from bluegrass to Dixieland standards.” With support from Everymen, Rachel Kate and Antoine Dukes, 8 p.m. Feb. 24 at Burro Bar, 100 E. Adams St., Downtown. Tickets: $8. 353-4686.
