What’s going on Saturday?



ESG–four Scroggins sisters plus various percussionists–formed in the South Bronx in the late ’70s, and went from covering the Stones and Rufus to recording for Tony Wilson’s Factory Records label. The band’s uniquely minimalist funk/post-punk sound soon caught on in clubs and dance palaces like the Paradise Garage. Decades later, songs such as “Moody” and “UFO” still resonate, partly because they’ve been sampled hundreds of times. Alas, ESG, which reformed in the ’90s, has announced its Estrojam show will be its last [they lied].
