RIPPIN CHICKEN, JeCONTE: Doors @ 9, Music @ 10:00pm

Formed from deep within the Westsound Union, Rippin Chicken plays a greasy brand of funky, boogaloo and soul jazz, executed with creative ease by 3 funky brothers from different mothers who LOVE to play together. After performing and recording together for the better part of a decade in groups such as, The Funk Revolution, The Lucky Mystery Now Orchestra, and The Bucks (all under the direction of the great Lucky Brown), Rippin Chicken presents this power-house rhythm section as the center of attention, playing the music they wanna, in a style that is all their own. “A soul-food Organ trio gone Rippin!”
JeConte is a blues rock singer and harmonica player based in Sausalito California. He travels the World performing at clubs and festivals with his bands based in the San Francisco Bay Area, New Orleans, Paris, France, and Bamako, Mali. Coming off his successful 2013 release of Mali Blues (Winning multiple top 10 playlists and honors – see TheMaliBlues.com) and with multiple European & US tours in 2013 & 2014, 2015 will see the release of ‘Down by the Bayou,’ produced by, and featuring, Anders Osborne and released on Red Parlor Records. Tonight’s band includes guitarist Brian Jordan (Karl Denson’s Tiny Universe) and some of Seattle’s finest funk and soul players! $8

ELDRIDGE GRAVY and THE COURT SUPREME; Doors @ 9, Music @ 10:00pm

Eldridge Gravy and the Court Supreme is a funk juggernaut. Backed by the hot, gritty orchestration of the 13 member Court Supreme, front man Eldridge Gravy easily works dance floors to a fever pitch with his full-bore performance and smooth rapport with the audience. Early in 2006, in what was supposed to be a one-off event, an instrumental band teamed up with a guest singer to learn some James Brown and Parliament covers for a moving-out party. The next morning, the house was torn up; shattered glass all over the floor, tables were broken, and the landlord was on his way for the final walk-through. In the wake of this carnage, ELDRIDGE GRAVY & THE COURT SUPREME was born. The group quickly picked up horns, keys, backup singers, and is presently 14 men and women strong. Their sound is a viscous blend of the covers they cut their teeth on; Sly & the Family Stone, Funkadelic, and James Brown are certainly touchstones, but Eldridge Gravy has a distinct sound that’s unmistakably their own. While Eldridge Gravy fit in with the recent soul revival heralded by Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings, they have also played alongside hip hop crews, Balkan brass groups, and scuzzy bar rock bands. Their high energy, tight arrangements, and massive stage presence have the power to convince any crowd that funk ain’t dead. $10

VOODOO LADYBOYS, LESSER BANGS; Doors @ 9, Music @ 10:00pm

Lesser Bangs are set to reclaim the massive power of rock and roll that has begun to quietly fade in the era of samples and laptops. Inspired by the valiant battle for rock’s soul that Lester Bangs championed in his writings, Lesser Bangs embody their namesake’s passion for truth in music. Forged in 2012 by keyboardist Adam King and guitarist Sean DeGregorio, LBs finds the pair’s like-minded but unique takes on rock and pop fusing in harmonic splendor. Endearing hooks are gracefully attacked, and the potential for psychedelic expansion lies within each melodic turn. Both King and DeGregorio write songs that are inherently thematic – where the lyrics and melodies can’t exist without one another, and where each tune is a story unto itself. Rounded out by bassist Scott DeWitt and drummer Justin Birge, Lesser Bangs make music that’s more electrifying than a toaster in a bathtub. The four-piece feeds off one another’s passion and technique, and the result is a throbbing life-force of rock and roll. Remember why you first fell in love with the electric guitar. Find the piano sexy once again. Let Lesser Bangs reignite the sonic quiver of your soul.

When Ween shockingly called it quits in 2012, a gaping hole was left in the hearts of all who worshipped at the holy altar of the Boognish. Their end marked a devastating blow to lovers of rock, comedy, social experimentation, and all things brown. But on Halloween night of 2013, a group of Portland musicians joined together to host a black-mass resurrection of the band’s spirit at Club 21. As the night progressed, a wafting aroma of pork roll, egg and cheese began to emit from the stage amplifiers and some in attendance swear they say a spiky-haired stallion emerge from the fog machine. The Boognish spoke to the musicians that night, and instructed them to bear the torch of his legacy – they would no longer be known as men, but rather as The Voodoo Ladyboys. As such, the VLBs not only pay homage to the spirit of Ween musically, but also through their embrace of the absurd. Sonic annihilation hasn’t felt this good since the liberty bell first cracked. $6
