Maine is blessed with an embarrassment of brass-band riches this month, as the anarchic 19-piece What Cheer? Brigade march into Portland (a week after Slavic Soul Party! and the Dirty Dozen) to play SPACE Gallery (538 Congress St.), with theatrical post-punk project (New England) Patriots joining the party at 8:30 p.m. Tix: $10-$12 (all ages). 828-5600. space538.org.
