With guitars that shift between big Rock riffage and a Funk shuffle, a dance-floor-ready groove and dashes of party-starting EDM, it’s no surprise that New York City’s Spirit Animal has become renowned for its energetic and wildly entertaining live shows. With the tight crunch of Blood Sugar Sex Magik-era Red Hot Chili Peppers, the manic Blues Rock guitar energy of The White Stripes and the rascally playfulness of Electric Six, Spirit Animal’s breakthrough came last year with the release of the EP Kingdom Phylum. The EP’s single “The Black Jack White” earned MTV Buzzworthy status and airplay on mtvU and helped the band add to its steady fan base. 


9 p.m. Saturday. $5; $8 day of show. Southgate House Revival (Revival Room), 111 E. Sixth St., Newport, Ky., southgatehouse.com.
