The Motet — Dec. 29

Funk group The Motet got together in 1998 in Denver, Colorado, where the band’s then-rotating cast of musicians amassed a loyal throng of hometown fans. The group’s latest album, Totem, was produced by Lettuce and Soulive guitarist Eric Krasno, and “covers a lot of ground stylistically while never losing sight of the groove.” A favorite on the festival circuit, The Motet has performed at Electric Forest, Summer Camp, All Good Music Festival, High Sierra Music Festival, Bonnoroo, Peach Fest and others. Pho opens the show.

8 p.m. on Dec. 29 at Turner Hall Ballroom in Milwaukee; $18; pabsttheater.org
