Nearly every Friday night between 2006 and 2015, Henry Roland – better known as Henry + the Invisibles – took over Rebar and performed a multi-instrumental, loopfest of a solo show. Over the course of roughly 500 shows, Roland plied and perfected his zany and unflinchingly optimistic brand of space-funk in front of multitudes of boozy San Antonians, establishing a reputation as a must-see performer whose one man funk band could seemingly, if we were all on Roland's astral plane, save the world. All utopian daydreaming aside, you owe it to yourself to catch one of Roland's dates this weekend, which find him back at his old haunt and doing some live recording. Be prepared to sweat your ass off and come away with a new appreciation for the restorative powers of funk music.
