Godfather Knows Best

Now in his 70s, go-go legend Chuck Brown remains cooler than most people half, even a third, his age. It's been more than 30 years since Brown fathered go-go, a percussion-heavy blend of funk and soul, and his new album, "We're About the Business," captures him as rowdy as ever. While the sound he made popular may have never caught on nationally, it remains a sturdy regional phenomenon. Local favorite jazz/funk band Plunky & Oneness opens the Fridays at Sunset show at Brown's Island July 6 at 8 p.m. Tickets are $20. Call (800) 644-8515 or visit www.ticketmaster.com. S
