Funkuponya, Actual Proof 

When: Wed., Dec. 1, 10 p.m. 2010
Price: $6

Not to be mistaken for the Raleigh rap duo that shares its name, Charlotte quintet Actual Proof instead deals in acid jazz instrumentals, characterized by its heavy psych vibes and keys that stretch out over a funky backbone of slap bass and syncopated beats. Raleigh quartet Funkuponya, the evening's headliner, covers similar ground, though its soulful funk workouts are more straight-ahead and swampy, melding rich grooves, steaming organ and bluesy guitar solos into surprisingly melodic jams. Pay a $6 cover at 10 p.m. and prepare to boogie deep into the night. —Spencer Griffith
