One of A-town’s best and brightest lineups, who do their best to revive the funk wherever they may play are back tonight, but for a limited engagement. The Atlanta Funk Society closes down their July gig with the final monday at the Five Spot down in Little Five Points. Be sure and check ’em out with 2 sets of funky as cover tunes. Show begins at 10; Spencer Garn (he of the Soulphonics, and Super Dynamite Express will sit in on keys and liven up the crowd with dj sets before and after.
Also, this past friday was George Clinton’s 70th birthday, so hopefully you got on the Mothership to wish him a happy journey into his seventies. Hard to believe the man is still rockin’ considering all he’s been (and put himself through). We’ll have more announcements later in the week and of course you can listen to us on 91.1 FM WREK Atlanta — or streaming at wrek.org — this and every Thursday night from 11pm to midnight, Eastern time. In the meantime, here is last week’s playlist… you can stream last week’s show by clicking here:
