Living Colour: Oct. 3

Now in their 30th year, Living Colour still rocks their signature fusion of metal, funk and definitive alternative sound. Formed in New York City, the band quickly rose to national attention in the late 1980s and their prominence culminated with the hit single “Cult of Personality” and a Grammy Award for hard rock performance. Living Colour’s sound combines the heavy metal and hardcore punk music of their heyday, an ever-evolving alternative and hip-hop aesthetic, and afro-beat rhythms that to this day populate the music of indie bands and major label artists alike. Still touring and releasing music, their live shows are a spirited and intensely powerful experience. Living Colour comes to town on Friday, Oct. 3, at the Mystic Theatre, 23 Petaluma Blvd N, Petaluma. 8:30pm. $36. 707.765.2121.
