Punk Funk Mob 

When: Fri., July 13, 7 p.m. 2012
Price: $10

Singer Femi Andrade came up in the spoken-word and soul scenes, and at one point, she produced minimalist, melodic tracks that could accurately be dubbed "house music." But a few years ago, she found her voice in punk. Her wardrobe followed suit: Femi, who uses her first name as a moniker, now dresses in plastic sunglasses, pinstripe pants, and suspenders, her hair coiffed in a perfect pixie or baby 'fro, her eyeliner as thin and exacting as if it were drawn with a paintbrush. The Berkeley native co-fronts an energetic rock quartet with singer/bassist Quincy Ramone, both of them howling over Jeff Logan's jagged guitar riffs and quick, steady drumbeats provided by Michael Logan (aka "Money Mike"). They aren't paradigm shifters so much as purveyors of an older, funk-driven style of garage rock, but they've mastered the form so convincingly that it makes for a dazzling live show. Punk Funk Mob headlines 924 Gilman (924 Gilman St., Berkeley) on Friday, July 13, with support from Peligro, Moderate Excess, GoodMorning, and Skin & Bonez. 7 p.m., $10.
