International Polka 

Brave Combo at Ashkenaz.

The Grammy-winning Denton, Texas band known as Brave Combo was playing world music before there was a name for it. Its Doors cover "People Are Strange Polka" won the band street cred with new wave fans back in the day, and they continue to leave crowds slightly confused with an eclectic repertoire that includes zydeco, Tex-Mex, klezmer, cumbia, blues, and Latin music, to mention just a few of the styles the members mix and match into a psychotropic blend that's all their own. Fans from Homer Simpson to Garrison Keillor praise them for their high-energy international jamborees. Friday, August 24 at Ashkenaz. 9:30 p.m., $12 advance, $15 door, $10 students. Info: 510-525-5054 and Ashkenaz.com
