Wize Guys

Pie Gomez regroups with a new-look version of his jazzy hip-hop ensemble

"Those guys [from Yoko Love] bring a little bit more of a funk element, and the music's more upbeat and raw," he says. "It's a little bit more of a hip-hop feel. We were so stale before. The new energy is just incredible."

Cousins of the Wize are scheduled to perform on Friday, December 28, at the Bash on Ash in Tempe, with Phunk Junkeez, Golden Tung, Warsaw, Tolerance, and Cut Throat Freak Show. Showtime is 7 p.m. The show is all-ages.

With all due respect to the Fiesta Bowl Block Party blowout (after all, what's a New Year's Eve without Bryan Adams yowling "Cuts Like a Knife"?), the musical highlight of this week will be considerably lower on both the hype and decibel meters. Jimmy Eat World leader Jim Adkins, fresh off a fall tour with Weezer and Tenacious D, plays a rare solo set at Modified Arts on Thursday, December 27, to benefit Mothers Against Drunk Drivers. Showtime is 9 p.m., but it's likely to sell out, so you'd best get there early.
