9:00 doors / 9:30 show

The Lizard Lounge will be filled with music from around the globe pumped with funk, jazz, and psychedelic wonder.

Some people may ask, what do the Background Orcs sound like? You will never hear the same response twice. From the weirdest corners of the funk universe the Orcs deliver musical moments that will make you burst out with laughter, induce introspective trances, and fill your belly with helium to lift you off the ground! Add a side of Africa, and a trip below the sea to get a little closer. Take the journey from the simplest pocket, to the farthest reaches of metric complexity and immerse yourself in the groove.

Tipsy Oxcart plays electric, sweaty, bumpin' Balkan music, channeling the spirit of 36 hour weddings to keep the crowds dancing until the sun comes up. Serving up originals and fresh, upbeat arrangements of urban dance tunes, the band deviously infuses the sounds of South-Eastern Europe with elements of funk, rock, and jazz. Dig naughty violin solos, atomic accordion grooves, freak-out clarinet, and the baddest rhythm section this side of the Mediterranean. A party with Tipsy Oxcart is guaranteed to shake the dance floor all night long!
