Kung Fu w/Damn Rightt

When: Tue., Nov. 6 2012

In a bizarre turn of cosmic events, Connecticut-based funk band Kung Fu will be playing on Election Night at the Pour House. It's cosmic because Kung Fu's keyboardist Todd Stoops was living in Charleston at the time of the election four years ago. "When I was first living in Charleston, I played at the first Pour House," Stoops says. Not only that, but he was in the band Emotive with local American Idol contestant Elise Testone back in 2008, and he was a regular player in her much beloved James Brown Dance Parties. While in the Holy City, Stoops also hopes to catch-up with old Charleston friends. In regards to the Election Night gig, the Kung Fu keyboardist ensures us that his band will be able to bring some levity to an otherwise serious night, and if their funky, electro-jazzy sound and whimsical karate suits are any indication, the guys are game for a good time. —Katie Kimsey TUESDAY
