L.A.'s eight-piece collective Breakestra is all about (by the band's own admission) "deep funk, good ol’ hip-hop breaks and psychedelic soul-jazz fever." And, the bio continues, a show entails "dancing and getting your wig flipped back by a non-stop throwdown." Breakestra formed from weekly jam sessions at a coffee shop called The Breaks, with founding members multi-instrumentalist Miles “Music Man” Tackett and vocalist Mixmaster Wolf serving as the backbone. Breakestra comes to the Asheville Music Hall on Thursday, Nov. 17. Eymarel opens. 10 p.m., $8. http://ashevillemusichall.com.
