Tonight! Fusik Album-Release Party at Culture Room
Fusik (pronounced "few-sick") has its roots in the South Florida
break-dancing scene, and the band isn't shy about bringing hip-hop
fundamentals to the masses. Without MCs or Froot Loop-y beats, Fusik
digs below the surface of hip-hop.

Formed in 2005, the five-piece band's Latin-tinged, instrumental funk brings to mind Medeski, Martin & Wood and the Spam All-Stars. Within a few years of its conception, the band had an LP out (2007's Fusik: Only a Few Are Sick) and some big gigs, including a show for 3,000-plus at the Evolution II festival in Orlando. The band will celebrate the release of its second album, Hot Skillet,
with a party at the Culture Room. The disc showcases the band's
maturity through simple yet creative and well-arranged grooves. Plus, a
break-dance competition should drive home the funk/hip-hop connection
this band represents.
Fusik Album-Release Party, with Ketchy Shuby. 8 p.m. Saturday, June 26,
at the Culture Room, 3045 N. Federal Highway, Fort Lauderdale. Tickets
cost $10 (receive a copy of album with paid admission). Call
