ALTERNATIVE | World/Inferno Friendship Society 

World/Inferno Friendship Society isn't as much a musical group as it is a sign of Judgment Day. Led by lead singer/master of ceremonies Jack Terricloth, the Brooklyn orchestra-circus-rock-tent revival features a rotating cast of performers that creates a klezmer/jazz/ska/soul-fueled party. There's never a dull moment on the dance floor when a smidge of punk is added to an already up-tempo fiery combination of musical theater and show tunes. Fellow Brooklyn alt-country band O' Death co-headlines this concert. The quintet is rooted in rustic American folk and burns with intensity a la Tom Waits. Wild Yaks opens.

World/Inferno Friendship Society performs Saturday, November 24, 8 p.m. at Water Street Music Hall, 204 N Water St. $15-$18. waterstreetmusic.com.
