Eight Gigs: My Funky Valentine's Dance Party
Sat., Feb. 14, 9:30 p.m., G Street Wunderbar, $10-$25
Swap out the usual V-Day tradition of spending way too much on dinner and listening to Boyz II Men for getting funked up with all the college kids out in Davis. The Davis Live Music Collective presents the whimsical hodgepodge that is Ronkat Spearman's Katdelic (pictured), a funky, psychedelic ensemble that comes off like a combination of Blood Orange plus Van Halen, with a pinch of Donovan and Prince thrown in for good measure. Grammy-nominated frontman Spearman is a veteran of George Clinton's Parliament Funkadelic, and nine-piece Sacramento band Ideateam opens up, so you can be sure both the noise and the funk will be brought. 228 G Street in Davis, www.ronkat.net.
