In mythology, folklore and speculative fiction, shapeshifting is the ability of a being or creature to completely transform its physical form or shape. In the world of music, the verb can be applied in a similar context, particularly to one New York powerhouse funk quartet. Enter TAUK, a mind-melting, continually moving, an ever-evolving force of nature that has taken the jam community by storm with their complex time signatures and catchy, melodic grooves.
Our favorite funk jam group Pigeons Playing Ping Pong flew on over to the Boulder Theater this past weekend. October 18th and 19th marked another two night run in Boulder, Colorado.

Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats’ video for their song, “A Little Honey,” is premiering today at Rolling Stone. The video was directed by Rett Rogers and filmed at the Turf Club in St. Paul, MN. Rateliff explains, “‘A Little Honey’ is a song all about love and desire. Everyone needs some honey and sweet loving, and in the video we wanted to embrace that kind of love in couples of all ages. A burning love doesn’t have any kind of borders or age restrictions.”

We are pleased to release the latest single from the SCI Sound Lab! Check out the Keith Moseley led "Gone Crooked" on your favorite music streaming service!
"Gone Crooked" is a fun little song penned in Nashville with my new pals Rayland Baxter and Nick Bockrath. After listening to a few of the rough mixes from Rayland’s new album “Wide Awake,” I was all in on working with him. That album has become one of my favorite releases of the year. Nick plays guitar on Rayland's record, and I am also a fan of his work with Cage the Elephant.
George Thorogood brought his (Delaware) Destroyers and their “Rock Party” to Florida’s Seminole Coconut Creek Casino last Friday night.
