Bay area Francophiles scratched a major itch last weekend when Corridor made its local debut, but lovers of all things en Francais might as well keep the party going when New Orleans sextet Sweet Crude plays a cheerful, Louisiana brand of indie-pop in both French and English.

To Sweet Crude, the sound of language itself is an instrument in its own right, one more tool in the creative arsenal, and that’s evident on a new wistful and bouncy single in 7/4 time, “Sun Sept,” which appears on a forthcoming album, Officiel//Artificiel, set for release on April 24.

If you love sparkling melodies and the way a marshy bayou can mystify the senses, then you probably want to catch this gig where one of Tampa Bay’s best, and well-rehearsed jazz outfits Prince Tanuki opens the show.


Sweet Crude w/Prince Tanuki. Thu. March 12, 8 p.m. $. Crowbar, Ybor City.
