Orgone 

When: Thu., May 9 2013
Price: $10/advance, $12/door

L.A.-based funk/jam band, 9 p.m.

The L.A.-based funk band Orgone is an enigma. Formed in 1999, the eight-piece group quietly built their name as a hip-hop backing band — playing behind Cee-Lo, Alicia Keys, and Estelle — while also releasing five mostly instrumental albums. This spring, they’re back on the road with original vocalist Fanny Franklin and touring behind the release of two new albums: New You Part One (available only at their show) and Fuzzed Up, a gritty collection of raw funk and soul released as a free download at deepeastmusic.com. Rounded out by two horns, two percussionists, bass, keys, and guitar, the ensemble sounds like a 21st century Parliament or Booker T. & The M.G.’s. —Stratton Lawrence THURSDAY
