Music, Funk, soul and disco

Gothenburg, Sweden-based Goat is bringing their ace voodoo psychedelia to Pappy and Harriet's Pioneertown Palace. Remember in "2001: A Space Odyssey," when the primitive hominid tossed a bone and it turned into a space station? World Music, the group's 2011 debut, is exactly like that—except substitute a Fela LP, a fistful of Southeast Asian psych-funk and a ripping bong hit for the bone. Since then, they've put out four equally mind-altering EPs. Their live performances are one hell of an energetic, intense experience too—in addition to chanting over bongos and reverb-heavy, Middle Eastern-influenced riffs, they dress in colorful masks.
