The New Mastersounds

Old-school UK funk quartet The New Mastersounds, now hitting their ten-year anniversary, has been anchored for the past decade by the astonishing pocket of bassist Pete Shand through gigs alongside Matisyahu, the Crowes, and the Peas. Keep your fingers crossed for their 2007 instrumental cover of Roots Manuva's "Witness (1 Hope)," whose bobbling bassline has been begging for a stoner-jam reinterpretation forever. This should be a no-brainer for Daptone fans.

Is Venue's Twitter indicates that it's actually due to a power outage, not a scheduling problem.

In yet another scheduling mix-up, this has been moved to Rapture; Jeyon points out that "this is a relocation relocation."
