Local Pulse’s Weekend Top 10

Gallery Night's "Art and Soul" featured band: Funk Heads

Whewee. It has been a season! The great thing about living on the Gulf Coast is that our holiday season doesn’t end with New Year’s Day. By then, we are just getting started. It was a great Mardi Gras season and the exclamation point was Valentine’s Day.

But now that we are in the Lenten season and a lull between big holidays and summer, it’s the perfect time for trips to Palafox Market or relaxing at Bands on the Beach. So, what’s on the slate for this weekend?

Let’s take a look…

FLOW TRIBE MARDI GRAS HANGOVER Friday, February 16 at 7 p.m. at Vinyl Music Hall. Flow Tribe recently released their new single featuring Ivan Neville called “Keep Pushing”. The single is an upbeat funk/soul anthem that spreads the good word of never giving up. If any band has experienced the full spectrum of fortune and adversity it’s the six Southern rascals in Flow Tribe.

Founded in 2004, the band solidified in the wake of Hurricane Katrina’s destruction with the mission to bring the next generation of the New Orleans’ sound of unstoppable rhythm and passion to the world. The next 15 years would find Flow Tribe performing over 120 shows a year crossing the country multiple times from the biggest festival stages to freak shows. These are six seasoned blue-collar musicians who grind out the good times.
