Galactic, Gene Evaro Jr.
February 12, 2017$30
Already anticipated as arguably the show of the year, Galactic will perform in the Crystal Bay Casino’s Crown Room on Sunday, Feb. 12. Gene Evaro Jr. opens at 9 p.m. Presented by Sirius XM’s “Jam On,” tickets are $30.
At this point in its career Galactic is as much a band as it is an ethos. The group has established itself as one of the pre-eminent ambassadors to New Orleans music to the wider world, to the point where when you think “Galactic,” flashes of purple and green streak across your eyes and a second-line rhythm pops into your hips. New York Times writer Malcolm Gladwell has been the purveyor of the “10,000 Hour Rule,” where a person will master a certain skill or activity if they put in 10,000 hours worth of practice. Forget hours, if you were to tally the score Galactic probably have put in close to 10,000 shows over the the last 20-odd years, clearly masters of the art of the funk on stage. When you walk into a show, you know you are going to get two hours of tight, joyous music that is going to leave you feeling sweaty and alive.
