D.C.-based, internationally touring bassist and composer Kris Funn debuted his band CornerStore at the DC Jazz Loft back in January 2012. The group has come a long way in the years since. The band mingles blues and jazz with hip-hop and gospel, creating a rollicking sound that extends the lineage of American music into a funkier future. Funn’s bluesy, big-boned bass playing is CornerStore’s foundation, and also its lighter fluid. From there, the group’s sound twists upward like smoke, kindled by crackling drums and snaky electric guitar. Two separate sets at 7:30 and 9 p.m.
