Two Nights with Galactic This Weekend

February 13th, 2014

NOLA-based instrumental-funk outfit Galactic are bringing their shake-your-hips music our way this weekend. Although they began as an eight-piece with Theryl DeClouet (House Man) as their singer, over the years, they’ve paired down to five and parted ways with DeClouet. But no doubt, they still bring the funk: Witness their most recent album, the Mardi Gras–themed Carnivale Eletricos (stream it below). Of course, when Galactic (above, doing “Dolla Diva” with Maggie Koerner) come to play it’s rarely alone, and this visit is no different: They’ll feature talented New Orleans singer Maggie Koerner, and they’ll be joined by the blues-funk-rock-soul group JJ Grey & Mofro (below, doing “Brighter Days”). And the good news is that you’ve got two chances to check out this fantastic lineup, tomorrow at the Capitol Theatre and on Saturday at Terminal 5.
