The good doctor at tonight’s sonic checkup is better known as Fishbone singer Angelo Moore. But no matter which name he’s using, Dr. Madd Vibe and his funky-freaky crew won’t just cure what ails you — they’ll open you up, mix things around and sew things back up needle-tight before you can take another breath. He and the Links might be “Famous but Not Rich,” but they lay everything down as smartly and surely as The J.B.’s, keeping their funk-ska grooves firmly rooted on Earth while unlocking their collective minds enough to follow Sun Ra into a truly outer space. Unless you’re in P-Funk, that’s not an easy thing to do, but vocalist-saxophonist-poet-actor Moore is a literal ringmaster: Tonight he also presents carny performers alongside singer Delphine de St. Paër and Beats Antique dancer Jodi Waseca-Jenkins.
