FRIDAY, JULY 23

KOOL & THE GANG

Summer is the perfect time for the bright, energetic soul-funk that Kool & the Gang has peddled for nearly fifty years. The band's groovy "Get Down On It," and yes, even its omnipresent "Celebration" are woven into just about everybody's family-friendly party playlist. While Kool & the Gang ought to provide a lively set, the rest of the bill is bonkers with heavy-hitters and pioneers: Morris Day and the Time, Bootsy Collins's Rubber Band, and Doug E. Fresh. Morris Day's struts have stayed fresh, as he proved in Raleigh last year, while Collins's fantastic intergalactic funk remains otherworldly. Doug E. Fresh, the Human Beat Box himself, gets the ball rolling. Even considering that these acts are well removed from their prime years, it'll be tough to keep your seat once Fresh hits the stage. —Allison Hussey
