Grupo Fantasma

Critic's Pick Release Date: 2010-06-16

If you were bummed to miss Latin-funk orchestra Brownout! when they played Luna a few weeks ago (see “Bella Luna,” June 2), Friday’s your last chance (for a while at least) to see their “senior alter ego,” the 11-piece ensemble Grupo Fantasma. In support of the extremely fun and danceable El Existential (GF’s fourth studio album), the Grammy-nominated Austinites have set out on an extensive tour of the U.S. and Europe that ends at the Curaçao North Sea Jazz Festival. If anyone’s sitting on a nest of sky miles, I’m available to accompany you to see GF in Curaçao (September 4), but rather than waiting endlessly for you to call (210-227-0044 x 128), I’ll just meet you at Scout Bar. $17, doors at 8pm, Scout Bar, 19314 281 N, (210) 494-7700, scoutbarsa.com.
