Ava Luna

Post-punk funk with a dash of agitated soul, Brooklyn’s Ava Luna bumps and grinds sound like Clarence Carter jamming with ESG. The group cultivates a funky friction on its release “Electric Balloon,” full of punchy melodic jabs, soulful struts and rhythmic teases. Stylistically diverse to suit the needs of their three lead singers, the group wisely never strays from doing what’s best for a song. From the sultry gospel-infused punk of “Judy” to the jittering dance floor of “Sear Roebuck M&Ms,” Ava Luna aims to free your ass so your mind will follow. The band plays Thursday, March 20, at Gallery5 with Krill, Navi and Naked Baby. Doors open at 7:30 p.m. Admission is $5. gallery5arts.org.

    • Dang - why is Mr Burns not mentioned here? Perhaps because I'm an idiot. Sorry…
