How Funky Can You Get?

The song begins with the lone twang of an electric guitar pulling you toward the dance floor. Your two left feet scoff and think, So what? You can’t get me going with one stupid axe. Then the electric bass boom-de-booms its way into the groove, the drums tis-tis-tis, and a trombone piles on top. Your body’s rhythm receptor picks up on the fact that there’s some funk in the vicinity, and your feet finally lose control. “Breaking it down” is an appropriate description. Until the vocals hit you. Whether James Brown, George Clinton, or the Ohio Players are delivering the words, it’s fair to say you’ll lose all self-control once they blast onto the mike. This Saturday at Grass, get into the moment at Funk Garden, a weekly jumpoff where DJ Umber and Phase Deux Musiq orchestrate the tunes and you just let your body do what it feels. The party starts at 9, and there’s no cover.
