Giving you the music a day early:
Let’s consider the descriptor “Terrifying Funk from Beyond the Grave.” So what is that? Well, it’s exactly what it sounds like: Unearthed by Professor Nigel Quentin Fontenelle Dumblucke IV in the sands of Egypt, Here Come the Mummies are funk collective who dress as mummies. There’s really nothing more that can be said except the band will bring their ghoulish good time to Shooter’s Sports Bar & Grill. It’s a 21-and-up show with the music starting at 9:30 p.m. Tickets are $20 in advance and $25 day of.
I’d never heard of k.flay, a female rapper who started making music while in her dorm room at Stanford University. So I stopped playing The Clash’s Combat Rock and gave k.flay’s mash-up of The Zombies’ “Time of the Season” a listen. Not bad. Apparently as child, k.flay listened to her father’s classic rock records and dug Parliament-Funkadelic, too, so now she mixes her love of hip-hop with indie, creating a one-woman show that is part Liz Phair, part Missy Elliott as k.flay raps, sings, creates beats, plays guitar and more. See it all happen at Juanita’s. Cover is $10 with the doors opening at 8:30 p.m., and the music starting at 10 p.m.
Here are Here Come the Mummies with their “Pants”:
