LET THE FUNK FLOWWW
“Now’s the time for unity, compassion, togetherness… let the funk flowww” As timely a message as any because yes! Lettuce was in the buildling. The band was there too and with them came the most epic big-screen quality film scores, mellow jams, and head bobbing collection of music to be found in one place.
When I wasn’t taking in the scene at the gorgeous Playstation Theater, or people watching, I found myself standing, clapping, and wishing I could whistle like this dude in the upper rows who I’m pretty sure came out solely to say, “Hey look at me everybody, I can whistle” and make me jealous. But I digress.
The first half of the set, which got going at 10, featured songs that felt like they had walked directly out of a Hollywood action flick and into the speakers. The second half was peppered with soulful vocals and felt like a medley of original tracks and iconic funk classics.
