GALACTIC MEDIA RECAP

June 30th, 2011

// GALACTIC MEDIA RECAP //

Tuesday, June 21 – Friday, June 24, 2011

************************************************

Oh man–if you were anywhere near here last week, you were without a doubt experiencing the monument of sounds expelling from every crack of 61 Wythe Ave. That’s right my friends–New Orleans funk masters Galactic were in the building for a four night stint that peeled paint & melted brains. The band wasted no time getting busy with tracks off of their most recent record, Ya-Ka-May, throwin’ down covers that gave the originals a run for their money & featuring some serious special guest-age including Warren Haynes, Scott Metzger, ?uestlove, Eric Krasno, Steven Bernstein, Chali 2na, Nigel Hall and Jamie McLean. And yes, we too have been sporting that open-mouthed look of awe ever since.

Get funky and share your photos & videos captured during the event on our Flickr & Vimeo groups!

February 15-17, 2011

Last week, February 15-17, a little band called the funky METERS came to town. They played and they played and they played, and they blew the house down.
