Nightlife Agenda Pick of the Week

By Fritz Hahn

The Brand New Heavies's blend of acid jazz rooted in '70s funk put them at the top of the heap when that trend peaked in the '90s. Once the group went dormant, its hits gradually became classics. Last year vocalist N'Dea Davenport rejoined the group, and now it's like they never parted. The reformed Heavies launched a mini-tour early this year to push their reunion album "Get Used To It" and when they hit Washington and Baltimore in July, they looked as happy together as the audience was to see them. The band's chemistry is as tight as ever, so catch an encore of the Heavies' triumphant return at the 9:30 Club Friday.

This is just one of the weekend picks you'll find in our Nightlife Agenda column, alongside concert previews, a punk and metal DJ night -- even a party with an American Apparel-stuffed piñata.
