Midnight Spaghetti & The Chocolate G-Strings: 15 Years Of Funk
Venue: The Ante Room
Address: 219 W. Water St. Charlottesville, VA 22902
Midnight Spaghetti & The Chocolate G-Strings – Keeping the old school party vibe of Digital Underground and Trouble Funk alive, Midnight Spaghetti takes the beat and runs with it in progressive directions. Their blend of classic funk, conscious frenetic rap, a killer horn section, and a contagious enthusiasm for life leave people wondering what planet they came from, but more importantly, how they could get on that mothership. There are definite similarities to the contemporary genre-bending hip hop group Ozomatli, as well as the ruckus attitude of the early Red Hot Chili Peppers, but listen closely to the lyrics and you’ll find the brainy humor to be reminiscent of Frank Zappa.
The Transmitters – The Transmitters are not your typical reggae band. Starting up years ago in the guitarist’s wood shed, the band’s roots in rare, rocksteady B-sides has set them apart from almost every reggae band present on the scene today.
