Keep the groove going at the official Funky Friday after-party featuring Central PA’s own freak funk band, Dr. Slothclaw!
Then stick around for the after-after-party with Aortic Valve at 11pm!
A psychedelic funk explosion has been erupting from York, PA since the fall of 2006. Spreading their twisted, funky improv jams and mind numbing sing-alongs through the ears of listeners and promoters, Dr. Slothclaw has blazed a path of originality to create a mesmerizing freak show on stages around the Tri-State Area.
Gaining attention at every turn, this 5 piece brings huge amounts of bass, screaming guitars, and blistering drums to an ever increasing fan base. Winning the Tri-State Indie “Jam Band of the Year” award in February 2012, and self-releasing their full length album debut “Whats That Buzzing Noise?” in May 2012, Dr. Slothclaw has been spotted all over the place bringing scores of crazed dancers to a sweaty, action packed ear-gasm.
Currently working on their double disc follow up and playing a steady stream of shows, the band brings a “funky dose” of fun and excitement to their live shows. Letting their influences show, you can hear the Frank Zappa, Tom Waits, King Crimson and Pink Floyd that mingles with a dirty funk that was clearly inspired by Parliament Funkadelic, James Brown, Betty Davis and all the legends of the 1970’s.
