The Eugene, Ore., band Cherry Poppin' Daddies - the band with the intentionally risqué name and a penchant for onstage theatrics - plays from their new album, "White Teeth, Black Thoughts," at 9:30 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 26, at the Shakedown, 1212 N. State St.
The band's diverse repertoire includes ska, rockabilly, rhythm and blues, soul and world-beat.
Their new album was inspired by the recent recession, and features old-time swing music with lyrics about modern issues that mirror the strife felt during the heyday of swing music of the 1930 and '40s. For more on their music, see daddies.com.
