ARTS Pick: Spafford

Spafford performs Sunday, February 12, at The Southern. Spafford performs Sunday, February 12, at The Southern.

Spafford takes everything it learned from jam legends such as Widespread Panic, Umphrey’s McGee, Particle and EOTO and channels it into a self-proclaimed form of “electro-funk therapy.” The Arizona foursome lays down epic meldings of dance rock, most of which clock in between 10 and 25 minutes, relying as much on its hard-driving sound as a full-throttle light and screen show to create a total sensory experience.

Sunday, February 12. $10, 9pm. The Southern Café and Music Hall, 103 S. First St. 977-5590.
