MAY 14

Mating synthesized “Bang a Gong” riffs (“She’s So Soft”) with a late-Lou Reed monotone (“People Say”), the Wolfgang Press’ new Funky Little Demons is as dryly danceable as a prancing skeleton. Such juicy funk conventions as horns and female backup singers are enlisted, but the sound remains impeccably minimalist. Suddenly, Tammy! opens at 9 p.m. at the 9:30 Club, 930 F St. NW. $12. (202) 393-0930. (Mark Jenkins)
