We are totally here for the uptick in musical offerings we’ve recently seen at FL!GHT Gallery. Having hosted the last few installments of the delightful monthly experimental music series Contemporary Whatever, as well the upcoming January show with Samantha Riott and Sarah Ruth, the ever-relevant art spot will host Austin band Nori this week.

The five-piece makes vibrant, thoughtful music, complex and often thematically heavy, yet endlessly pleasurable to hear. Key to that appeal is the way it fuses jazz with folk and an eclectic array of world music influences. Nori just dropped its dense and searching sophomore album Bruise Blood at the end of November, and we’re here to tell you that it will be something special to experience live. Taking its name from a detail of a heart-wrenching story from pre-Civil Rights-era Harlem, the album focuses on timely themes of intolerance, hate, racial justice and the hope for change.

$5-$10, Thu Dec. 20, 8pm, FL!GHT Gallery, 112R Blue Star, (210) 872-2586.
