UApresents announced its 2013-2014 season on Tuesday night and there's a lot of stuff to like (Chris Thile from Nickel Creek on February 8! A run of shows at Club Congress by jazz pianist Jonathan Batiste in November! The rescheduled Lang Lang show on October 22! Other stuff I'm not really sophisticated enough to be into!), but the Red Baraat show scheduled for the Rialto on October 4 sounds particularly entertaining. I can't say I ever thought I'd want to hear a New Orleans-style brass band influenced by Bollywood jams, but it works, as you can hear in the NPR Tiny Desk show above.
