The launch of a live-music venue is always cause for celebration, but when the new spot arrives with a gaggle of big bookings (The Roots & Elvis Costello, Jane’s Addiction, Spoon) and a reputation for greatness in its New York home, we get extra tingly. Brooklyn Bowl’s Las Vegas era begins, appropriately, with a funk-jazz trio so tied to the spot, its shows there go by the special tag Bowlive. Bonus: The Meters’ George Porter Jr., Lettuce’s Nigel Hall and the Shady Horns are all scheduled to join in on the fun. March 8, 9 p.m., $10-$20.
