When: Wed., Feb. 23, 8 p.m. 2011

Fishbone are the only band ever to get H.R. and Donny Osmond on the same album, but they've spent more than three decades being sorely underheard—too many people remember only "Party at Ground Zero" or "Sunless Saturday" (or nothing at all) from their vast catalog. When a band's been around as long as this Los Angeles ska-funk-punk outfit, the personnel changes are bound to get complex, but what you need to know is this: Original member Walter Kibby II (vocals, trumpet) has rejoined the fold, and core players Angelo Moore (vocals, saxophone, funkiest theremin in the west) and John Norwood Fisher (bass) are taking the band's current incarnation into the studio for the first time since 2006's Still Stuck in Your Throat (Ter a Terre/Sound in Color). A 2010 documentary, Everyday Sunshine: The Story of Fishbone, captures the band at both high and low points—and the high points are always the live shows, which crackle and burst with enough mad-genius precision and wild energy to remind you of P-Funk in their prime. —Monica Kendrick
