It's hard to overstate the infectious energy and thrill of a live performance by the New Orleans band Galactic. The group leads audiences on an unpredictable, brass-fueled march through the worlds of hip-hop, soul and funk, as they're fused with rock and, of course, New Orleans jazz.

The intensity reached a fever pitch when Galactic visited Washington, D.C.'s 9:30 Club for a night of live music and dance, originally webcast live on NPR Music Feb. 23. For this performance the band was joined by guest singer Corey Glover of the band Living Colour.
