"I'm Rich As Old Croesus When I've Got Ten Pieces"

Kokning cover art by Kim Hiorthey, 2010.
Cheers to Five Alarm Funk, the exceptional 10-piece funk band from Vancouver, British Columbia, currently touring Canada. They chewed up the Phog Lounge last Wednesday. People who couldn't get in were watching through the front window and grooving out in the cold and damp on the sidewalk. Inside was extremely funky, foggy, and fun.
