JULY 22 >> TELL YO MAMA AND ZOOFUNKYOU AT LANSING BREWING COMPANY
Hold my beer. Lansing Brewing Co. is serving up a night of funky music to complement the taste of your IPA. Zoofunkyou takes the stage first, followed up by TELL Yo MAMA to finish out the night. With influences like The Grateful Dead and Jimi Hendrix, the Chicago-based band Zoofunkyou delivers psychedelic vibes in the form of introspective lyrics and wailing guitar runs. Their sound has been referred to as the lovechild of Fleetwood Mac and Tame Impala. TELL Yo MAMA switches it up with a mix of original, soulful, rock compositions to cover songs to match the groovy mood. The band began as a collection of friends with a need to jam out, and has now grown into something much more than what they imagined. So if you are in the mood for ale and a side of tunes, you know where to go Saturday night. 7-10 p.m. FREE. Lansing Brewing Company, 518 E. Shiawassee St., Lansing.
