I think I might have discovered the most fun job in the music business: the guy who makes up the names for the FiyaWerx productions super jams.
In concert with Chicago's SilverWrapper, the team that conceived of FiyaFest, FiyaWater, FiyaAid, and WildFiya brought Bone Boys Living Funk Addiction -- a mashup of players and styles from Fishbone, The Lee Boys, Living Colour, P-Funk, and Jane's Addiction -- to the Concord Music Hall in Chicago on March 7th.
The Revivalists, in the midst of a lengthy tour that well find them showcasing at SXSW later this week, had Concord rocking until almost 2 am. To me, they feel like a perfect "crossover" act, steeped in Crescent City musical tradition and sense of adventure, but with a broad appeal that could find them as NOLA rock ambassadors to the mainstream.
