Seattle has the funk, and the city is letting us borrow some rhythm this weekend in the form of eight-piece group Polyrhythmics. A conglomeration of Afrobeats, multiple horns and a brand of swanky coolness that can’t be taught, their music pulls you in — even without the enticement of vocals. Around for three years, the band has toured up and down the West Coast and released two full-length LPs. They’re a self-described brotherhood, and song titles like “Stinky Finger” and “Nurple” prove they like to have a lot of fun while still taking their music seriously.
