  • Dam-Funk

Post-punk trio Whom Do You Work For? released its Panic EP yesterday — download the four-track album here.

Tonight, Sports & Leisure performs with King Rey and Baby Bee at The Parish at House of Blues at 9 p.m. Stream King Rey's 2011 late-night beach party garage-pop throwback EP here.

Long Island power-pop trio Broadcaster is at Hey! Cafe at 7 p.m. Stream the band's 2012 EP Tightrope Walker here.

Los Angeles boogie-funk king and intergalactic groove medium Dam-Funk performs with a live band at Tipitina's 10 p.m. Sunday with DJ Soul Sister. The producer and DJ culls from obscure, slick '80s synth-based funk, with deep, slippery bass tones and shimmering synthesizer washes, all backed by minimal hand-clap electronic beats.

Find and download tons of rare, unreleased, instrumental and all-around solid Dam-Funk tracks here.

More after the jump.

Here's "Leaving the Dock," the first video from Curren$y and Harry Fraud's Cigarette Boats EP:

At 10 p.m. Saturday, catch Kristin Diable and Baton Rouge-New Orleans country-tinged singer-songwriter Denton Hatcher at One Eyed Jacks. Stream Diable's 2012 album here, and grab the single "My River" here.

Also Saturday: Alexis Marceaux & The Samurai are at Circle Bar at 10 p.m. — listen to a track from her (and hey, a bunch of other featured artists in Gambit's current music issue) here.

Slow Danger Brass Band performs with punk rockers Adults and ska-influenced prog-punk supergroup Controller at The Big Top 2 p.m. Sunday. Listen to Adults' urgent, high-voltage demo here. Stream Controller's two-track demo here.

Download Weezy-in-training rapper Lil Chuckee's "Bills" featuring Kevin Gates and Paul Shawty.
