Rock & Pop, Seasonal Special Happenings

Bernie Worrell Orchestra/Sultans of Bing

When: Tue., May 13, 9 p.m. 2014

Keyboardist Bernie Worell coined the phrase “world of originality” to describe his one-of-a-kind music. His latest project, BWO Is Landing, comes across like a retro-future exercise in synth exploration. Backed by an eight-piece band, Worrell creates an expansive soundscape on the album. The title track takes the classic funk aesthetic and thrusts it into the contemporary world. “Double W” illustrates a sparse, bizarre other-worldly landscape, and “Get Your Hands Off” is a solid laid-back funk tune that gets slammed into an aggressive chorus. It’s clear the funk icon’s versatility and originality won’t be ending soon. 9 p.m., $10 ADV, $15 DOS. Beachland Ballroom. (Eric Gonzalez)

Price: $10 ADV, $15 DoS
