What is soul, as a wise funkadelic once asked? Because this is a pretty good way to find out for yourself with four of famed L.A. label Stones Throw’s top bands, finally touring all together. Label founder Peanut Butter Wolf DJ/VJs—serious stuff by itself—while the legendary Dam-Funk pushes the limits of what one man with a keytar is commonly supposed to be able to accomplish, and then the Mutantes-meets-Funkadelic-y Stepkids do a set of their own and back up ‘70s-style soul heartbreakers Myron & E. It’s the kind of show that gets a line around the block at fests like SXSW, but now it’s coming as close to your doorstep as live-entertainment regulations permit. Truly a night to remember, so start forgetting useless info now to make room!
