Midnight: E Company ~ NOLA Jazz Soul Funk to bring you to the moon. Also a quintet, and just as dynamically heavy as the first 2 acts, E Company packs memorizing melodies with tight, intricate beats and fat syncopated grooves that put a smile on your face and a stranger’s hand firmly on your ass.
Do not miss this shit. These three amazing bands will light you the fuck up. Come get some.
Finally, for like the first time in for effen eva, we don’t have to play a show on a Friday night. So we’ll be hittin’ the town, catching some of New Orlean’s finest. Here’s what’s going down in the Big Easy tonight:
Bywater cats, catch either Johnny Sketch & the Dirty Notes (Loyola Alum’s, Rock mixed w. Strings, Horns, bawdy singing, a damn good time) at the Blue Nile, or the Other Planets (Psychedelic Strange Rock, peep their video here) + Felix at the Always Lounge. Both of these shows start at 10pm. If your hoping for bedroom boogie by 10 & looking for a little earlier entertainment with your pretty little lady, go see Kermit (yeah, I’m pretty sure I don’t need to describe Kermit) at Rock’n’Bowl at 8:30.
Pick of the Night: Break Science at Tipitina’s, 10pm. This show will feature Chali2na (MC from Jurassic 5, an OG, if you’ve never heard Quality Control, do your research) and Kirk Joseph (Susie player from Dirty Dozen, literally one of the best Tubists in the world). Opening the show will be Gypsyphonic Disko. I am particular interested in this. A collaboration between Galactic’s sax player, Ben Ellmen, and DJ Quickly Mart, Gypsyphonic Disko melds gypsy and Balkan horn and chordophone lines with New Orleans grooves and hip hop beats. Peep their tracks here:
Even if you can’t catch the show or don’t live in New Orleans, figured y’all would find this interesting, as it is in the similar vein of DBRS. Enjoy, & hope you have a delicious Friday!
