Here Come the Mummies play the Wolf Den

Published June 06. 2013 4:00AM

Modern music is rife with artists who perform in makeup and/or costumes (although chubby guys in corpse paint doesn't really work - and I'm talking to YOU, Dani Davey of Cradle of Filth!).

Meanwhile, all 12 members of the funk outfit Here Come the Mummies do in fact appear onstage as though they've just crawled out of Tutankhamun's tomb. Reportedly, the costumes are a fun way of dealing with the fact that the musicians are well-known session players bound by impending contracts to not reveal their true identities. Or something like that.

The important thing is: Here Come the Mummies - with or without the moulderin' linen body-wraps - are a seriously badass R&B band. Their latest album is called "Cryptic," and they'll appear Friday in the Mohegan Sun Wolf Den.
