Zozo (ex-Fela Kuti)/Shokazoba/Andujar afro-psych-rumba at the Elevens Sat nite 7/24

Just because it's not noise don't mean it ain't an independent show worth checking. We're in this together to bring you one of the great bands of the Afrobeat Revival, Zozo Afrobeat. Based in NY, led by ex-Fela/King Sunny Adé/current Lauren Hill guitarist Kaleta (from Benin) and his Zozo group. Local afro-funk ensemble Shokazoba also play. Opening is DJ Andujar's Rumba Psicodélica, a vinyl/visuals/live percussion jam focussing on hard 70s West African funk and voodoo rhythms. Bell & Howl provide the improv film loops. Starts at 9, 21+ at the Elevens. $10. This is a non-corporate, independently produced Afro music jam that could destroy you if you think of that weak Putumayo shit. Fuck that. Come listen and reach that stateless state of enlightenment. Details or death threats to Andujar: 413-325-3382. Fuck pussy noise crap. This is truly monster.
