PBS @ THE MINT (members of The Funky Meters)

George Porter Jr., Russell Batiste and Brian Stoltz, collectively known as PBS, are performing at The Mint ( 6010 Pico Blvd. Los Angeles, CA 90035) on Saturday February 2, 2008. Delta Nove is the opener. Delta Nove is supposed to go on at 9 pm and PBS at 11:30 pm. Tickets are $20 at the door.

I have seen PBS once before, but have seen George Porter Jr. and Russell several other times. They are a tremendous rhythm duo and Stoltz plays a great guitar. George Porter Jr. is one of hte nastier bassists I’ve ever witnessed, especially when he plays slap. For any fans of New Orleans funk – this show should not be missed.
