Jim Arbogast


New Orleans funk and jazz hybrid Galactic, has backed many notable artists in the past — Big Freedia, Macy Gray, Irma Thomas, Mavis Staples and Allen Toussaint — that alone should tell you members bring it. Richmond’s own Future Prospect taps a similar vein with young jazz players throwing hip-hop, funk and R&B into the mix for a thoroughly modern update. Future Prospect takes the stage at 6:30 p.m. on Friday, June 23, and Galactic starts at 8 p.m. $10. venturerichmond.com.
