Otis Heat Play Bunk Bar 4.20

Otis Heat Play Bunk Bar 4.20

It is no coincidence that the word “heat” is part of this band’s name. The high-energy, adrenaline rushing songs of Otis Heat will definitely make your body temperature rise. The rawness of a grunge tone is mixed into hard hitting funk bass lines that pop right along to the drum beat. The prevalence of the bass channels Les Claypool and the weirdly gorgeous vocals bring a sound close to that as well. Otis Heat plays with emotion; their lyrics are unfiltered and sung with a punch. They draw post funk enthusiasts that love classic rock and dance as if it’s mandatory. OH is known for throwing down amazing and intimate performances, so if you’re out celebrating this Saturday and want to reel in the night on a high note (well obviously you’re going to do that, but if you want to see a concert) come to the Bunk Bar to see Otis Heat w/ TxE. - Colin Hudson
