Like every bar and bat mitzvah descending upon unsuspecting NW 37th Avenue, the Commodoreshit the Magic City Casino. You could sing these songs in your sleep, people: Brick House, Easy, Three Times a Lady. You even know the instrumentals, like Machine Gun reinvigorated by P. T. Andersons Boogie Nights by heart. So do you really even need to go?
Yes, and heres why. Because with tickets starting at just $25, you can get a bunch of friends together and make it a 70s afternoon. Dress in ridiculous garb think shoes with fish bowls in them roll a doobie, and then hit the show. The 2 p.m. start time leaves you plenty of options for extending that afternoon delight into the evening. And though the current Commodore lineup doesnt include Lionel Richie, these guys can still deliver the funk.
