Fishbone and MarchFourth Marching Band
- 10 p.m.
- Joy Theater, 1200 Canal St.
The Voodoo Music Experience ends around 11 p.m., but its programming continues at the Joy with ska/rock veterans Fishbone. The group remains enthusiastic and irreverent after 35 years, and it will be joined by DJ Quickie Mart, The Scorseses and San Francisco’s MarchFourth Marching Band. The latter brings a bohemian street theater vibe to their brass band music.

Songwriter Angel Olsen’s wise lyrics and patient, assured musical build have inspired a loyal, passionate following. The songs are only occasionally — maybe accidentally — poppy, but her musical voice is personal and involving because of that. Pitchfork reviewed this year’s “Burn Your Fire for No Witness,” writing, “Her songs are powered by a strange, anarchic electricity, always flickering on the edge of blowing out.”

Swedish folk-rock duo First Aid Kit released the lovely “Stay Gold” this summer, and strings help give the songs a country-like sweep. Sisters Johanna and Klara Söderberg have natural vocal chemistry, and on occasion they sing with unusual cadences that give an uncommon dimension to a common sound.
