Tonight: Orgone at the Fox Theatre

While its members had been playing together long before Orgone (playing tonight at the Fox Theatre with Liebermonster) was born, the Los Angeles funk band officially formed in 1999. Not long after its inception, the band added vocalist Fanny Franklin to augment its ornate instrumentation -- the standard guitar, bass and drum set up, fleshed out with a beautifully orchestrated horn section, congas and more.

Though Orgone's origins as an instrumental band can clearly be heard in their funky, intricate noodling, it is Franklin's soulful vocal leading that brings the diverse group closer to its audience in a live setting. For fans of throwbacks like Booker T. & The M.G.'s and early Parliament Funkadelic, Orgone has a danceable spread just for you. This show is all ages, and tickets are $10-14. Doors open at 8:30 p.m., and the bands start at 9 p.m.
