You didn’t get what you wanted for Christmas, and the much anticipated debauchery of New Year’s isn’t coming fast enough. Don’t fret, honey, take some St. John’s Wort to help you lose your blues and then check out Mikraphone. These three kings—Guillermo Brown on turntables and drums, Eric Ronick on Fender Rhodes piano, and Tunde Oyewole on electric bass—will have you feeling copacetic in no time. Between the three, they’ve jammed with the likes of jazzmen Milt Hilton and Anthony Braxton, Rite of Spring’s Mike Fellows, and the Roots. Their youthful avant-garde jazz, firmly rooted in drum ‘n’ bass and hiphop, is high-grade enough that you can shake your smartypants or just nod your neurons as you dig their intricate rhythms. At 9 p.m. at Bar Nun, 1326 U St. NW. $3. (202) 332-0533. (Holly Bass)
