Elixir // global.funk.soul.jam

If James Brown and Shakira had a baby.
Elixir is a brand-new collection of some of DC's most hardworking + prolific musicians, the long-simmering brainchild of frontwoman Evin Phoenix (evinphoenix.bandcamp.com).

A soulful mix of funky riffs on organ, hard-driving grooves, Afro-Latin percussion, and sultry, searing vocals, Elixir is truly a rock-potion inspired by musical sorcery and medicinal alchemy.

Come for the timeless classics, stay for the endless surprises. Especially the mind-melting funk organ + left-hand bass by multi-instrumentalist Rick Eldridge, and the in-the-pocket high-octane Afro-Latin percussion with Wes Crawford + Camilo Diaz.

Some highlights:
/ throwbacks to music of the civil rights era, with a twist
/ a special medley of Latin-infused covers of The Doors
/ irresistible move-busting original jams
/ revival of funky «Space Walk,» written by our organist in 1979
/ bellydance-inspired drum solo dance to close out the set
