On Saturday, October 3rd, undead funksters Here Comes The Mummies took part in at Democracy Comes Alive, a one-day, nonpartisan virtual music festival aimed at channeling the power of music to make a critical impact on civic engagement in this November’s elections and beyond.
Here Come The Mummies turned in colorful, funky renditions of “Friction” and “Threeway on the Freeway” for their remote performance. The first track, a dark and dirty slow-burn juxtaposed with the party-starting innuendos of the second showed off the range of this unusual and highly entertaining ensemble—whose identities, as always, remained obscured. Much like the band’s performance at Democracy Comes Alive precursor Quarantine Comes Alive back in May, Here Come The Mummies came out of the virtual festival as one of the most talked-about acts of the day.
