The University of Denver School of Music will rock the house tonight at the legendary Herman's Hideaway. Along with the four bands all made up of DU music students, there will be a light show and video shoot featuring Ooh La La Burlesque.

The Treetet specializes in mellow, jazz-influenced songs; the Other Black, an 18-piece band with a three-piece horn section and five backup singers, will offer hard-hitting avant funk and soul. Tickle Mafia will bring on the funk with costumes and guest dancers from Ooh La La Burlesque. And the evening will end with the polished indie rock group, Vetta Star. Doors open at 7 p.m., music begins at 8. Admission is $10 (18 and up) -- and those 21 and up can get a five-buck break if they use the password "Lamont."
