SAM KININGER BAND & MAYHAP
THE POUR HOUSE—Alto-sax man Sam Kininger came up in Boston trio Soulive's funk-orgasmic dreamscape, airing over heavy organ riffs before pushing his sax onto new planes of groove-oriented poetry in this, his new eponymous band. Kininger retained all the greasy funk and urban staccato of the former, molding slabs of soul jazz, guitar freak-out and velvety hip hop into perfect grooves. Raleigh's two-piece funk outfit Mayhap starts the party off right with their Orleans-flavored combo of jazz-organ and thumping drums. Throw down $7 at 9 p.m. Then, simply throw down. —Kathy Justice
