A “punk rock provocateur,” “jazz vibraphone visionary” and “percussion virtuoso” comes to Lake Tahoe’s South Shore this week.

The Mike Dillon Band performs Thursday, Jan. 14, at The Divided Sky in Meyers.

The band plays dance music influenced by all-things New Orleans, as well as Brazilian music, hard-rock band the Melvins and punk bands like Bad Brains and Dead Kennedys.

The group has headlined its own shows and opened for artists as diverse as Fishbone, Clutch, Primus and Galactic.

“People are always trying to figure out how to describe our music,” Dillon said in the band’s online biography. “Maybe we should call it New Orleans punk jazz Brazilian math rock? It’s a gumbo of tribal percussion, The Meters, old school hardcore, Brazil, hard bop and anything else that might move us. But you know, I really don’t care what you call it. We kick out the jams harder than anyone, and we also know when to heed the lessons of The Minutemen’s Double Nickels On The Dime and keep things straight to the point.”

The Divided Sky is located is located near the intersection of Navahoe Drive and U.S. Highway 50 in Meyers.
