First, we were happy because Chicago soul outfit The Right Now — one of our favorite bands on the scene today — was supposed to be in town this weekend. Then we were sad because they had to cancel. Then we were happy again because the band, righteous folks that they are, hepped us to the Monophonics, a six-piece psychedelic soul outfit from California that just so happens to be in town this weekend. Score! All is right with the world! It could be righter, but we’re not about to look a gift psych-soul band in the mouth. (Wait, did that sound weird? We’ve been thinking about getting into dentistry a lot lately.) Regardless of the logistics, we can get down on some deep, burly grooves that hearken back to the days of Norman Whitfield and early Funkadelic. Deep Fried 5 also perform.
