Photo: A night of progressive, heavy funk at Agave with Earphunk

Agave in Avon presents New Orleans born-and-bred quintet Earphunk on Thursday, Feb. 11. The band came together as college students around New Orleans and Baton Rouge, Louisiana, in 2009, creating a uniquely organic balance of heavy-pocket funk and reckless prog-driven guitar explosions, or “prog-funk,” as the band refers to it. “Sweet Nasty,” Earphunk’s most recent release, was recorded at the storied Studio in the Country in rural Louisiana, with additional horns bringing a proper funk authenticity to high-energy tracks like the Zapp and Roger inspired “Phine” and foot stomping title track “Sweet Nasty.” Doors open for the 21-and-older show at 9:30 p.m., and tickets are $10 in advance or $12 the day of the show.
