I'm not a huge fan of revivalist roots reggae, so I wasn't personally too excited for the Giant Panda Guerrilla Dub Squad show (plus, their name makes my head hurt) at Plush tonight, but somehow I missed that Los Angeles' Orgone was opening, which is very exciting news.
Orgone has been around since 2002 or so and their sound has evolved from a more straight ahead funk tribute act to a more unique blend of afrobeat, funk, jazz and retro-soul. Regardless of whatever you'd want to label them, they're a lot of fun to listen to, especially live. The show's only $8, so take a chance. Have a great night out on a Tuesday.
