Say it ain't so, Noot D' Noot announce last show

Posted By on Wed, May 7, 2014 at 10:59 AM

Everyone break out the tissues and feel-good ice cream tubs, Atlanta funk-glam-afrobeat troubadours Noot D' Noot have just announced a farewell show on May 31 at MJQ.

The eclectic genre-benders have been a mainstay in Atlanta for nearly eight years and the group's live shows have been famed for their Funkadelic-style of high-energy fun mixed with theatrical dance-chaos. Their last album, 2013's stellar Horn of Plenty, was an impressive showcase of styles, from the Gary Glitter-tinged single, "Streetfighter," to the tripped-out space-jam "Worm the Starhole." The Noots even developed a bizarro vocabulary, e.g. Do you Chunky Dunk?, and all of its members have some of Atlanta's best alter-egos. I mean who could forget the inimitable Dookie Platters, or the shape-shifting Kid Pyramid, or the partying M.D. Dr. Kinje?

The octet even made an impressive array of friends along the way. It collaborated with Dungeon Family luminary Sleepy Brown, opened for Athens-born of Montreal, and even added synthesizer parts to Mastodon's 2009 album, Crack the Skye.

Simply put, Noot D' Noot brought the party like no one else could. Let's hope this farewell is just a door to something brighter, groovier, and with more Chunky Dunk then Atlanta's ever seen before.

Noot D' Noot play MJQ Concourse Sat., May 31, with Judi Chicago. $15. 10 p.m. Concourse. 736 Ponce de Leon Ave. 404-870-0575.
