WHO: Ivan Neville’s Dumpstaphunk plus T.E.N. / Perro Bravo / Quickie Mart
WHERE: The Roxy Theatre @ 9009 West Sunset Blvd., West Hollywood, CA
WHEN: Saturday, April 6th, 2013 @ 8:00 pm

One of the funkiest touring forces on the planet brings the NOLA party to the Sunset Strip for a post-Final Four Saturday night show this weekend! From personal experience living in Uptown New Orleans the last three years, I can vouch for the fact that live music simply doesn’t get much more enjoyable, engaging and funkier than Dumpstaphunk and these guys (and gal) only get better and tighter with each passing year. To see a band genuinely hellbent on providing you with the best time possible, don’t miss out on this one and the rare chance to take all of life’s bullshit and PUT IT IN THE DUMPSTA.

Also, don’t miss TEN featuring the virtuosic Eric McFadden, Norwood Fisher (FISHBONE) and Thomas Pridgen of Mars Volta – what a bill!

QUESTION: If you could put together your own “Funky Dream Team” supergroup, which artists (dead or alive) would be a part of it? Bonus points if you give the band a name!

CONTEST NOTES: We’ve got one pair to give away, winners will be chosen from the responses and notified at least 24 hours prior to the show. You can’t win if you do not enter your e-mail into Disqus (or leave it in the body of your comment) because we have no way to notify you. Good luck and thanks for visiting Live Music Blog!

“Dumpstaphunk remains synonymous with New Orleans and anyone from NOLA would be proud to call this their official band.” — JamBase “Ivan’s so good, I play with him.” — Keith Richards, The Rolling Stones

    A music fest for the rest of us:


    returns with its 3rd edition in the heart of DTLA to once

    again serve all of those who don’t have the dough for a

    weekend in the desert.

    Don’t miss what the LA Times recognized as the community

    experience that skips “the mortal terror of your credit card

    statement [at other festivals]” and “revels in staying at

    home.” Doubling in size year to year,


    2013 is sure to yet again swarm with a giant crowd,

    the best of acts from LA and beyond, mouth-watering eats

    and surprises galore. Last year’s Main Stage featured

    Infantree, LA Font, Rumspringa, Big Moves and yOya, among others.

    Inside, bands played all day to packed crowds, while DJs led an

    army of dance fiends at the Jarritos stage outside. Come be a

    part of the oh-so-cheap magic, all happening on 4/20/13.
