Funktion - Inside the Mitten Series III
Inside the MItten Volume III featuring FUNKTION ALL AGES $10

FEATURED PERFORMER:
FUNKTION - www.funktionmusic.com
Don't show up to a live show unless you've come to get down; this stuff is additive-free, high-octane dance fuel.

Luckily for us there is a band that can show us all the branches of funk. No matter what frequency your eardrums vibrate at, the sonic eruption from Kalamazoo based Funktion will dose them at the right waves per second. It could be the silky smooth R&B that gets you. Or maybe it's the cool island dub rhythms that grab your ears. Then again it might be the rowdy hip-hop flavor that seizes your attention. But if none of that snatches your marbles, the unhinged, guitar-fueled fireball of funk will surely do the trick. Any way you slice it, if you've got a pair of ears, Funktion will unwrap something for them to chew on.

Opening act TBA

Doors: 6pm

Music: 7pm

Cost: $10/$5 for 12 and under

Catering: Fatty Lumpkin's Sandwich Shack

Tickets: Available 2/27/12 online

ABOUT THE SERIES: If you've attended one of our Inside the MItten events before, you know that these events continue to be unique moments of insight into what makes Michigan musicians consistently produce some of the best music in the country. The Inside the MItten Series returns on March 30th with the third installment featuring Kalamazoo's own groove machine, FUNKTION!  Join us at the Watermark 920 for an incomparable night of exposition regarding MICHIGAN music, food, beer, wine, and fun.

If you've never attended an Inside The MItten show, you are in for a treat. Our goal with these evenings is to give the audience member insight into what makes Michigan music inherently amazing.  From Motown to Iggy Pop growing up in Muskegon, Michigan, the MItten has borne chart topping artists in every genre for years.  We are hoping to catch these acts on the way up and get their stories as they are happening.

The first set of the night is our exposition set where FUNKTION will inform us on why they do what they do. The second set is a free for all dance party with a few audience questions thrown in for good measure.  The opening ast is still to be announced and will play a 1 hour set before FUNKTION.  Past Inside the MItten alumni include The Crane Wives, 5iveit, Ida's Rope, and Homeless Poet.

Come hungry as well!  Fatty Lumpkins Sandwich Shack is joining us with their custom sandwich station called "Fatty's On The Road".  Fatty's rolls out to the event with a microcosm of their amazing deli and churns out as many sandwiches in as many combinations as you can handle.  If you don't come hungry, don't leave hungry so make sure to grab a sandwich before you go, Fatty's is open until 11!

About FUNKTION:
Funk is an amorphous substance, able to mold itself to a variety of emotions and environments. It consists of all the things we know and composes all the things we feel. It's the stuff that jiggles in our spine, the thing that rumbles in our belly. It's the stuff crammed between our toes and the matter jammed between our ears. Funk lives in all of usits path traces the globe and its roots dig back to traditional campfire rhythms and primal soul vibrations. If you've experienced life at all until this point, you've come across at least one mutation of the entity of funk.

Luckily for us there is a band that can show us all the branches of funk. No matter what frequency your eardrums vibrate at, the sonic eruption from Kalamazoo based Funktion will dose them at the right waves per second. It could be the silky smooth R&B that gets you. Or maybe it's the cool island dub rhythms that grab your ears. Then again it might be the rowdy hip-hop flavor that seizes your attention. But if none of that snatches your marbles, the unhinged, guitar-fueled fireball of funk will surely do the trick. Any way you slice it, if you've got a pair of ears, Funktion will unwrap something for them to chew on.

But don't show up to a live show unless you've come to get down; this stuff is additive-free, high-octane dance fuel. And due to the fact that Funktion's sole mission in life is to make you shake your booty, trying to stand still might cause you a few problems. You see, the human body simply isn't equipped to deal with this much raw musical energy in the stationary position. The only way to withstand this tidal wave of sound is to get loose, get down with your bad self, and feel that groove out on the floor. Ride that funky wave out, because the only thing that could bring it to an end is last call. But then there's always the next night's last call in another city just down the road
