Sunday night in the basement of a Chinatown bar
straight out of a 1960's noir film, the funky bounce of boogie wax zaps the roof off the sucka. That bar is Li Po Lounge, and the party is none other than the most bangin' free weekly in town, Sweater Funk. The SF collective mirror Dam-Funk's "Funkmosphere" concept in L.A., spotlighting the finest boogie jams strictly from the late 1970s to mid-1980s era of warm, feel-good grooves and soulful 2-step. Expect to hear obscure dusty vinyl blended with classic favorites from the likes of Prince and D-Train that are guaranteed to knock the carnal essence of snub-nosed record collector and party-goer alike. Popping and locking moves definitely win points. (Michael Krimper)
