Get up, y’all. Richmond’s favorite brass party ninjas have a new album about to drop. “Brass Knuckles” contains 11 tracks of No B.S. Brass’ usual sizzling, hip-hop inspired, instrumental chronic. This time it recorded at local Montrose studio, a chill spot run by Adrian Olsen from Avers. To celebrate, the group is performing three consecutive nights at Balliceaux, from Thursday, Nov. 12 through Saturday, Nov. 14. The album is released worldwide Nov. 20, but locals can get their CDs early at the gigs. Will this be the record that puts No BS musicians on cereal boxes or behind a late-night talk show host? Will they have their Chuck Mangione “Feels So Good” moment? Each night’s party kicks off around 10:30, and there’s a special all-ages set on Saturday at 8:30 p.m. (late show at 11). There will be a limited number of people allowed for each show and presale tickets are available only at nobsbrass.com, with online sales stopping at noon, Nov. 12. Tickets are $10 in advance and $15 at the door — if there are any left. We suggest you see a doctor for album-release parties lasting longer than three days. balliceauxrva.com.
