Critics' Pick: The Nth Power



[FUNK] + WED., NOV. 15

New Orleans-bred funk trio The Nth Power are at once groovy, spiritual and political. The group critiques mass incarceration, croons about divine guidance, and makes an argument for doing it on the table. It’s also worth mentioning that drummer Nikki Glaspie was Beyonce’s touring drummer for five years. The band is joined at Cattivo by Dallas duo Ghost-Note, whose sound falls somewhere between funk, R&B and electronica, with fast-paced percussion (including heavy bongo usage), as well as synthetic accompaniment.

8 p.m. 146 44th St., Lawrenceville. $15-20. 21 and older. 412-687-2157 or
