The Budos Band @ The Independent, SF 1/15/11

This weekend brought the Daptone records funk collective known as The Budos Band to The Independent for two sold-out nights in the heart of San Francisco. The first time I caught this band was at last year’s Outside Lands Music Festival, and ever since they’ve been a staple in the rotation on my home stereo whether it’s me or one of my roommates blasting some tunes before we head out for the night.

Saturday night’s show was solid front to back. If you like deep afro-funk and some sinister dark grooves by a bunch of hipster-looking white dudes, this is the band for you. I highly recommend catching these guys when they roll through your own town…
