Twin Ports audiences have come to know what to expect at a Fred Tyson show: choreographed dancers thrusting about like drunken synchronized swimmers, hordes of snake-eyed downtowners on the verge of rioting, empty cans and broken bottles, inappropriate comments and even more inappropriate funk dancing. And that’s just the party in the parking lot before the show. Tyson’s soulful vocals and colorful costumes are backed by a mish-mash of rhythm-and-blues musicians and red hot go-go dancers orchestrated by longtime collaborator, guitarist and bassist Ben Marsen.

10pm Fri 5/6 at R.T. Quinlan’s Saloon
