Austin has brought me many musical joys. One of the most rewarding has been exposure to the funkier side of things.

It started with T-Bird and the Breaks, probably my most-seen Austin band because their live show is just so damn fun.

T-Bird and the Breaks at The Continental Club, August 09

Then came sweaty, sweaty nights at TC’s with Soul Track Mind who moved on up.

Then it was Big Sam’s Funky Nation

And digging the funky influence in Toro Y Moi’s new songs he played at FFFFest.


How did I live before, not getting down to some funky beats?

Do you get funky?
