Now that a month has gone by since the festival ended, Gathering of the Vibes staffers can relax just a little bit longer before they have to start planning next year's. In the meantime, Kung Fu is playing an official, though-somewhat-belated GOTV after party this Friday night at the Acoustic Café (you need a good month to return back to Earth). Their nu-funk sound is influence by both classic '70s funk with newer EDM influences mixed in, and band members have played with other popular local projects like The Breakfast, Deep Banana Blackout and RAQ.
The Acoustic Café, 2926 Fairfield Ave., Bridgeport. Fri., Aug. 31, 9 p.m. $15. (203) 335-3655, acousticafe.com.
