Earphunk w/This Is ART & Amerigo Gazaway 

When: Fri., June 6, 9 p.m. 2014
Price: $10
Bonnaroo isn’t until next week, but if you want to condition your mind and body for marathon jamming there’s no better foundation than the New Orleans funk that is Earphunk’s bread and butter. Speaking of danceability, local electronic producer Art Webb makes some head-expanding Technicolor beats under the moniker This Is Art, but his compositions exercise his fine-tuned pop songwriting skills rather than leaving you wondering when the bass will drop. If top-tier MC Mos Def, aka Yasiin Bey, was a part of your summer plans, you’re likely feeling double-bummed, since his tour is cancelled and Music City producer-MC Amerigo Gazaway’s stellar Mos Def/Marvin Gaye mashup mixtape has been pulled from the Web. But don’t pour one out just yet: Gazaway will be on hand tonight to premiere cuts from the follow-up collection Yasiin Gaye: The Return (Side Two). STEPHEN TRAGESER
