feel the funk
That was definitely the best show I've seen in a long, long time.
Last night, the Sugarman 3 & Co. came to Houston and played at the Continental Club. So, so funky. They're at the Austin branch of the Continental Club tonight, so if you live in Austin, you should go. They did two sets - the first was instrumental, and then during the second, they brought out legendary soul singer Lee Fields.
I was somewhat surprised by the crowd - the diversity was high. I know the Continental Club draws a diverse crowd, but last night the indie rock establishment was in full force, one of the hip-hop crews was there, and then the yuppie contingent also made an appearance. What also surprised me is that when I turned around to look at the back of the crowd (I was in the front getting down), the back of the crowd looked like a bunch of statues. How can you not at least bob your head to that kind of funk?!? It taps into a deeper part of your nervous system. I think you'd have to be dead not to move, but apparently some people can just sit there...
