Rock & Pop, Seasonal Special Happenings

Galactic/Ryan Montbleau/Sassafraz

When: Tue., Feb. 11, 7 p.m. 2014

Straight outta the bayou, Galactic brings a funky energy that few other bands replicate with any sort of authority. Theirs is a sound that dwells hundreds of miles away from our frozen Cleveland terra, making tonight’s show more of a vacation than anything. G’head and cue up Carnivale Electricos and take in the New Orleans-inspired vibes of “Magalenha” and “Carnivale Time.” Hell, even the interlude “Guero Bounce” is a danceable highlight (and fully capable of morphing into a longer jam segment, clearly). Last week, the band dropped new tune “Dolla Diva” to widespread joy on the Internet. The heavy emphasis on bangin’ drums and bass recalls the likes of “Guero Bounce” and promises all sorts of ass-shaking at tonight’s show. (Get there in time to catch Ryan Montbleau’s opening set too.) (Sandy)

Price: $25
