The Mighty Blue Kings: The Windy City jump revivalists have been together less than two years, but they've displayed a touch of the genie, having uncorked the bottle and unpenned the soul of the late, great swinger Louis Jordan, who's gotta be rockin' in rhythm down there in his coffin. The hard-boppin', jive-talkin', bar-walkin' Blue Kings bring their vintage brand of fun to the Rhythm Room, 1019 East Indian School, for shows at 9 p.m. Tuesday, July 23; and the same time Wednesday, July 24. The cover is $6.50. For details call 265-4842.

H.O.R.D.E. Festival '96: John Popper's Blues Traveler, Dave Matthews Band, Lenny Kravitz, and Rusted Root are the main-stage acts at this fifth annual neohippie jam--and we do mean "jam," as most of the participating performers are wont to kick off their Birkenstocks and wail a while, a la the fest's patron saint, the late Jerry Garcia. Sublime songstress Rickie Lee Jones has inexplicably been assigned to second-stage duty, but then, she's more postbeatnik than posthippie. Leftover Salmon, Super 8, and Medeski, Martin & Wood complete the lineup. In case you're wondering, H.O.R.D.E. stands for "Horizons of Rock Developing Everywhere" (see the story on page 92). The show starts at 4 p.m. Wednesday, July 24, at Desert Sky Pavilion, 2121 North 83rd Avenue. Tickets are $25 and $32.50, available at Ticketmaster. Call 254-7599 or 784-4444.
