For any of you fink fans out there, you are well aware of who George Porter Jr. is. For those of you who do not, let me tell you a little bit about a band called The Meters. They basically wrote the book on New Orleans funk and if you are unaware of their tunes I just feel bad for you.
Recently, George came through Denver with his good friend Joe Tatton of the New Mastersounds who happens to have a side project called Rodina with his wife and my buddies, some members of the Fox Street Allstars and Kinetix. Rodina is an awesome brand of music, spacey, trancey, dancey, and funky.
George put on a great show playing a bunch of tunes The Meters wrote but never recorded. The place was packed and everyone was sweatty. I managed to make my way up to the front for the end of the Rodina set when George sat in with them and played a tune everyone enjoyed. Check it out here:
