Need Something To Do Friday?

Bust out your platforms, wigs and brightly colored pants: It's time for some funk. If you've had a hankering for some groovy beats lately, or are pretty bummed because you missed the era when the genre reigned supreme, tonight is your chance for some funky fun.

The Funky Music and Art Fest is happening today at 7 p.m. at the Knitting Factory Concert House. For $8, you can groove on the KFCH dance floor to the sounds of the Scott Pemberton Trio, Phantasmagoria, Danger Beard, The Like Its, and
Shon Sanders.

Take a breather while you check out a psychedelic collection of work from an array of local artists. And while you cool down with a glass of water (or adult beverage), you can savor the fact that you've helped someone in a third-world country get a glass of clean H20 as well. The Funky Music and Art Fest is a benefit for Growing Change Inc., a local nonprofit that helps provide clean drinking water to those who don't have access to it. Visit ticketfly.com for tickets.
