The Fillmore

On Thursday, March 4th, electronica-jam band Papadosio brought their blend of noise, funk and layers of cresting bleeps and bloops to the famed Fillmore Auditorium in San Francisco, CA.

Approaching the middle of a 34-date winter tour in support of the release of their sixth full-length studio album, Ladies & Gentleman, The Infamous Stringdusters are having a ball.

Hot Buttered Rum are happy to announce that, in addition to dates already confirmed throughout the winter and spring, (see details below) they will be headlining their hometown’s most legendary venue, The Fillmore on Friday, May 13th. The show, dubbed The Black & Red Ball, goes on sale Friday Feb 5th with Bay Area comrades, Front Country and Quiles & Cloud as openers.

Few genres of music have stood the test of time unblemished such as funk. Though there have been progressions, evolution, and certainly fusion, the fundamentals are all in order.

As a Colorado native who moved to the Bay Area just three months ago it’s been an incredible transition and vast discovery process with the amount of incredible local and national musical talent that plays here constantly. Last Friday was humbling on multiple levels. It was the debut Fillmore performance of my favorite improvisational funk band The Motet.
