Ah, Pedrito Martinez.  The renowned Cuban conga player, singer and bandleader and his crew graced Club Congress last weekend not once, not twice, but FOUR times from Thursday to Saturday as part of their tour and UA Presents Fall 2014 Season.  Summaries usually go at the end of a full statement, but we’ll put one right here: This was, without a doubt, one of the absolute hottest concerts I’ve been to.

When I first heard several months ago about this DakhaBrakha show, all I knew was that they are a "Ukranian folk-punk, ethno-chaos" group and I was sold. I purposely didn't look into their music so I could just appreciate the show with no expectations and be fully surprised.

Since that BoomBox show a few weeks prior, I had been a lack of funk in my life. I knew that seeing The Motet live would be the perfect fix. I saw them earlier in the year at Gem and Jam and knew I'd be a total dingus to miss out on the show.

TOP 14 OF 2014: Albums

by Parisa Eshrati, Alt MD

10. This is Cave Music – Moon Hooch

This album charted in our Top 10 at KAMP for a solid 8 weeks, and there’s a good reason for that. I was going to write a nice little review for this but someone posted this in a YouTube comment and I feel like it perfectly sums this group up:  “It’s like Mr.Bungle met Medeski Martin and Wood and kicked everyone out of the band but the sax players and gave the drummers tons of acid.”

9. Dose – Sorceress
