The Hot Club of Cowtown: Conceived in New York but currently docked in San Diego, this trio plays a style of hard swing equally informed by the Gypsy jazz of Django Reinhardt, Stephane Grappelli and their great Quintet of the Hot Club du France and by Western swingers Bob Wills and Tex Williams. Seeming schizophrenia aside--the duality is sorta like takin' a girl to a rodeo or a sandwich to a picnic--the combination works like a danged charm, to utilize the parlance of the latter pair of aces. The Ramblers open at 9 p.m. Tuesday, December 9, at the Rhythm Room, 1019 East Indian School. 265-4842.

The Dandy Warhols: Great name--just in general, but also specific to the world view of this Portland, Oregon, quartet, which plays forward-thinking alt-pop with tendencies toward throwback stuff like glam; see the story on page 97. The Longpigs, and Treble Charger are the openers. Showtime is 9 p.m. Wednesday, December 10, at Nita's Hideaway, 1816 East Rio Salado Parkway in Tempe. Tickets are $10, available at Dillard's. 967-9531, 503-5555.
