Orgone

8 p.m. Monday, October 31. The Old Rock House, 1200 South Seventh Street.

On the heels of the soul revival comes the funk revival, split between quasi-traditionalists like the Budos Band and the New Mastersounds and quasi-jammists like the Greyboy Allstars and Dumpstaphunk. What unites the factions is percussion, often with a heavy Latin influence. Seven-or-more-piece LA band Orgone lays the percussion on rich as molé poblano and twice as thick, with svelte lead singer Fanny Franklin sweetening the Afro-Latin rhythms with a surprisingly muscular and sensual delivery. The band is named after Willhelm Reich's quintessentially far-out theory of the universal life force. Orgone's sound will make you feel it.

Perfect Drink Pairing: A Black Sombrero on the rocks, heavy on the chocolate tequila and Kahlua; good luck holding on to it as the dance floor starts to shake.
