“Have a drink on us,” Femi told the audience after “Funky & Proud” came to an abrupt halt. “Tell ‘em to charge it to Leather Feather,” she added.Femi, who considers herself something of a comedian, was playfully referring to the rather menacing punk band that preceded them on stage. Its members’ bodies and faces were covered entirely in white cloth, save for eye slits. Leather Feather, Punk Funk Mob, and the show’s headliner, singer-rapper Keno Mapp, all record for Mooremapp Records, a label run by Mapp and Fishbone frontman Angelo Moore. Moore, a saxophone slung over his shoulder, served as emcee for the evening and sat in on Punk Funk Mob’s closing song, “Funky 2 Me,” trading chants with Femi of oh, oh, hey, hey and it’s that funk, that funk, that uncut funk that makes me wanna ride.Punk Funk Mob’s sound, which draws on punk rock, funk, and elements of new wave, is quite a stylistic departure for the singer, who only a few years back was making a name for herself on the Bay Area neo-soul scene with mellow original music reminiscent of Sade and India.Arie.
