Philly DJ legend King Britt is reuniting his late 90s funktronica band Sylk 130 tonight for a one-time-only performance at the TLA on South Street. Expect lots of surprise guests, expect lots of body movin’. To clue into what this show is all about and why it’s such a big deal, revisit this MTV clip from 1998 here. Tickets and more information can be found at the XPN Concert Calendar. Below, get it on to “Last Night A DJ Saved My Life.”

Speaking of funk, longtime Philly entertainer Hezekiah Davis channels the eclecticism of Prince in his funky new band Johnny Popcorn. They headline Bourbon and Branch tonight; tickets and more information on the show can be found at the XPN Concert Calendar. Below, watch them play “Follow Through” in their Key Studio Session.
