Dec. 18 The Jazzwholes and Friends w/ DJ W.E.R.D. Slowdown, 729 N. 14th St. 8 p.m., $8, Break-up? What break-up? Forget about that. The Jazzwholes are back for another round of experimental jazz along with special guest DJ W.E.R.D. Although their official demise was back in 2008, the five-piece outfit has been reuniting more often as of late. According to the Jazzwholes’ Facebook page, the boys will hit Omaha’s ARC Studios this summer to work on a brand new album. Drummer Matt Arbeiter, keyboardist Nick Semrad, guitarist Andrew Bailie, bassist Seth Ondracek and saxophonist James Cuato decided the holidays were an ideal time to deck Slowdown’s halls with their smooth, soul-infused jazz. Since 2003, their loyal, local fan base has exponentially increased thanks to their old gigs at the former Goofy Foot Lodge. Their reputation as a solid musical act proceeds them.
