Commotion | Holocene | 1.8.2009
COMMOTION performs original music ranging from funk, dance, afrobeat, while incorporating impressive improvisation. Led by Ben Darwish, the group features some of the most in demand musicians in the northwest. You may have heard them battle Ohmega Watts or playing late nights at the Goodfoot.
