Dancing is a legit workout even if that isn’t the reason you go out on a Friday night, get loaded, and shake your moneymaker. Local electro-funk band Booty Planet wants you to have fun dancing at its show, but the group also wants you to burn some calories. The word “sweat” appears in Booty Planet’s songs and website repeatedly. Sure, the guys are talking about “making love” and “having a good time,” but we get what they really mean: exercise. They got that semi-retro and electric, ’80s funk sound that will immediately remind you of the workout videos your mom used to watch. Fun grooves aside, the band keeps the whole affair lighthearted and with just a dash of tongue-in-cheek irony. (Planet Booty, anyone?) But hey, it’s good to laugh a little while you’re working out.
