Sacramento band !!! (pronounced by repeating any syllable three times, most commonly “chk chk chk”) combines house beats, slinky bass lines, maddening horns, and laconic vocals to create danceable punk-funk with a bitter edge. As part of the Lincoln Center Out of Doors festival, which features performers ranging from world music groups to spoken word artists, they will be playing for free at the Damrosch Park Bandshell. Bring on the ’70s funk-inspired dance party.
