The Heavy and Wallpaper 

When: Thu., Nov. 4, 8 p.m. 2010
Price: $12-14
The Heavy have a little something for everyone: funk, soul, ska, and a singer that sounds like he won Curtis Mayfield's voice in a poker game. Stirring things up over the course of a pair of Ninja Tune-released full-lengths, the band recently got a boost from a Kia ad campaign (the one where the sock monkey gets a tattoo) that has certainly put the band on the pop culture radar screen. It's a tough break that the British band has to compete for your attention on the same week that their peers in Aloe Blacc and Mayer Hawthorne pass through town, but if you miss the Heavy tonight, don't sleep on their How You Like Me Now? EP, which features some brass backbone courtesy of the Dap Kings horn section. EZRA ACE CARAEFF
