[Music] Tuesday, July 31
Listening to The Memorials is like listening to original mash-ups. You can hear the styles of the supergroup’s former bands. Former Mars Volta drummer Thomas Pridgen retains the immaculately timed and tempo’d grooves from his days with Omar and Cedric. Viveca Hawkins still belts with the R&B soulfulness that marked her territory with Blackalicious, Talib Kweli and Cee Lo (among an incredible list of others). But the melodies, the lyrics, the vibe are all their own. Listen to “Daisies” for a sonic reason to visit the Bunkhouse on a Tuesday night.
With Rhyme N Rhythm, Asterionella, Mission Bells, others 8 p.m., The Bunkhouse, 124 S. 11th St., 384-4536, $7
