Tonight: Lyrics Born and Live Band Play a Tribute to James Brown and Curtis Mayfield

Categories: Show To Know

At Yoshi's tonight, with some serious funk.

Last-minute change to your Saturday night schedule? This evening, Bay Area hip-hopper extraordinaire and surprisingly capable singer* Lyrics Born plays a tribute to James Brown and Curtis Mayfield at Yoshi's S.F. For this show, called "Continuum," he'll have his live band (full horn section, etc.) on hand to tackle some of the greatest funk and R&B songs ever written. And how will it sound? Scope a video of Born and crew preparing for the show after the jump. (Hint: Gooooood.)

"Continuum" goes down tonight at Yoshi's on Fillmore. It's $26, but then how often do you see a funky fresh live band play Brown and Mayfield?
