Friday, July 4th
Ought (w/ Dub Thompson)
This post punk group from Montreal almost sounds like melodic noise punk. It’s very early Modest Mouse-ish, which is enough to convince me. Plus, I always love shows at Gasa Gasa.
I’ve recommended them before, and I’ll do it again. Sweet Crude is what you get when you mix Southern Louisiana culture with indie folk-pop. 12 Mile Limit is throwing a 4th of July party with food trucks and music, so this isn’t one to miss. I’m in this video, find me for a prize.
12 Mile Limit. 500 S. Telemachus.
Saturday, July 5th
Questlove + Soul Sister
Seriously, need I say more? The Roots veteran and current bandleader of The Tonight Show is a must see for this Saturday. YOU GUYS NEED TO SEE THIS SHOW.
Sunday, July 6th
Hot 8 Brass Band
If you didn’t get your fill of brass earlier in the week with Soul Rebels, this Sunday has your cure.
Enjoy the music and keep it funky ya’ll? Are you in a band? Have friends performing in your parent’s garage? Tell us about it in our Comments Section!
