Southern Shenanigans Recap

Hekler brought his mind-melting tour to Republic NOLA.
There’s a lot of shows in the next few weeks. Here are a few we think you should checkout.
Flying Lotus should be marked on everyone’s calendar given his impressive repertoire.
Tash Sultana is one of the breakout stars of the last few years. She started out as a street performer in Australia and is now selling out arenas around the world.
For your heavy dose of wubs, Dirt Monkey is bringing all the wobbles to Republic NOLA towards the middle of the month.
The Best of the Rest
Fresh Deep South Dance Releases
Boogie T. just released a brand new EP with his band Boogie T.Rio, and River Beats New Orleans has your first chance to listen.
The Three The People EP contains three brand new singles. It expands the band’s signature funk and rock fusion, and even a few heavier bass breakdowns. All tracks feature vocals by Boogie and keyboardist Andrew ˜Yano” Yanovski.
sfam & TVBOO‘s long-awaited VIP of “dahshigo” is finally available to stream. The crowd-pleasing track has been mesmerizing audiences around the country for months.
Klutch released two tracks. “Just Listen” and “Just Breathe” are very different tracks, but they both share the same creative flair we’re accustomed to seeing in any Klutch track.
BuckTen released a heavy, dreamy track called “Nectar.” Appropiately, it’s reminiscent of a Bassnectar track, in my opinion.
