Brave Combo was the first band ever to grace the stage of Levitt Pavilion (100 W Abram St, Arlington, 817-543-4308) when it opened in 2008. It’s fitting that the Texas-based group is back to lend a hand for this installment of Levitt’s Living Room Series. Sometimes classified as polka, the Denton quintet plays it all. World Music is a more accurate label if you have to give them one, but their groove-infused songs cross every line. They were the band at David Byrne’s wedding. Nuff said. This is a free virtual event, but donations are appreciated. At 8pm, go to Facebook.com/LevittPavilionArlington.
