The Magic Number: 3 Reasons to Go See Chronics of the Nar

Posted February 13, 2008 at 03:25:59 PM by Lee Stabert


Playing tonight at The End with Ishesafe, Gabe Vitek & The Ivory and Uncle Pervy.

1. Because they have a song called "Funky Dinosaur." (I'm guessing that this picture I pulled from their MySpace page is him—check the claws.)

2. The band's name appears to be a reference to C.S. Lewis' Chronicles of Narnia series. One of the "freighties" on LOST—our favorite new polar bear hunting archeologist—is named Charlotte Staples Lewis: also a reference to C of N. Think about that.

3. Greasy funk is the perfect pre-Valentine's Day lube.

I fear that this marks a return to the early/mid 90s, when hundreds of terrible bands made up of Chili Pepper-loving white kids who wanted to show off their chops and thought they were Bootsy created some of the shittiest music of the last fifty years.

Please, someone, steal their van before they play.

You have to admit that is one funky dinosaur.
I would probably wear an airbrushed t-shirt of that.

I have to say, I experienced the Nar last night. I walked away feeling like I had just been laid by the Coors Light twins...at the same time

No one, and I mean NO ONE brings the funk like the Nar. Last nights show rocked my world, and as far as I'm concerned, I actually feel sorry for the people paying money for Linkin Park and Kid Rock tickets. If you wanna rock, see the Nar.

Chronics of the Nar are awesome! Their show rocked my world (even though The End sucks and didn't let them play their full set list)...If you have not checked them out, please come to a show...you will be blown away by their talent and dashing good looks! :)

A Chronics of the Nar show is like having an orgy....but with your ears and eyes. They are fun to watch and the music makes you feel good. If you are looking for something to do on Valentine's day besides your girl, check them out.

Bio

A long, long time ago in a galaxy far, far away...

An exploratory alien spacecraft from the funky planet Nar 316 was thrown off course by a meteor and came crashing to earth. There were no survivors.

A short time later, a herd of dinosaurs wandered near the radioactive funkiphied crash site and were forever changed. Their DNA began to mutate over time; some quickly, some slowly. From this radioactive, funkiphied herd of dinosaurs evolved such legendary creatures as the Funkasaurus, Zeus, Moses' brother Aaron, Socrates, J.S. Bach, Count Dracula, Harriet Tubman, Ghandi, Otis Redding, Grover Cleveland, James Brown, Bill Brasky, the Geico Lizard, and Charlie Murphy...

And now, in the year 2008 A.D. four strapping young lads, who all carry that same strand of funkiphied dino DNA come together to join forces and kick out the jams.

Prehistoric Funk for your Junk brought to you by:
Luke Meeker - Giganotosaurus
Connor Dixon - Dilophosaurus
Carl Gatti - Velociraptor
Austin Littrell - Tyrannosaurus Rex

"Refreshingly original spin on funk rock music. With an intelligent and imaginative songwriting style, fusing everything that you love about grooves with ethereal textures."
- Jonathon Jircitano
The Hollywood Kills

"A prehistoric elegance combining hip-hop, rock, and instrumental jams in such a way that no one can compare...these guys are going to pack out any venue and shred some nar!"
