Not that we care what they think in Frisco but the SF Weekly (wait, we thought you weren't supposed to call it SF? hmmmm) named Honeycut the Best Soul/Funk Band in town.

Well, this isn't your father's soul music. There's Garbage in there, some electronica... modern might be a good way to put it. Sorta sounds like Beck's forays into nu whiteboy funk which is dangerous because even Beck has failed in that world more than he's succeeded.

Honeycut is out on the road supporting their new cd, "The Day I Turned To Glass", on DJ Shadow's label, Quannam. They play tonight at Spaceland for one of their Club NME dealies. Don't ask us what makes Club NME shows there any different than regular shows there, but ok.
