Amazing genre-benders Tank and the Bangas showered their glorious talent, love, and grooves on Senn High School in Chicago today. The New Orleans-based NPR Tiny Desk winners performed for 700 Chicago Public School students alongside Alderman Harry Osterman and Principal Mary Beck. Their set included jazz-infused slam poetry, freestyle rock, and gorgeous R&B vocals that inspired the entire audience.
At one point, the group asked for volunteers to dance on stage, which brought the house down! See the why in the video above.Posted 06.19.17 Permalink to this story

The Andy Animal “Meltasia” festival takes place in Catskill, New York. It is a focused rock’n’roll weekend event that brings together the coolest of the cool underground tastemakers, like the Black Lips, Shannon & the Clams, Pentagram, Kool Keith, Bloodshot Bill, White Mystery, Mungo Jerry, and Black Oak Arkansas. In 2016, comedian Neil Hamburger was the host, hundreds of people camped in an abandoned zoo, and harmonica master Daddy Long Legs even played in a former monkey cage.
