Live Bands

Puff Puff Beer, the Smokes, Left Over Soul, Down North

When: Thu., Sept. 15, 9 p.m.-12 a.m. 2016

The question to ask yourself when you consider a lineup like this one headlined by Puff Puff Beer is, “Can I keep up with all this funk?” The Oakland-based sextet brings the sonic kitchen sink and then some to the party, blending soulful grooves, powerful rock riffs and oh-so-funky beats into a spicy stew that insists on listeners moving their feet when they play. Ask anyone who saw the band at Volume earlier this year. Joining them for this massive night are regular visitors from Seattle/live phenomenon Down North and local cats Left Over Soul and The Smokes. Did I mention stamina is key for this one?
