AFROBEAT PARTY: Superhuman Happiness, EMEFE, and Treasure Island at Eclectic

Neo Sora ’13 is bringing the beat back into your life this Saturday. Lineup, ticket info, and FR33 L3G4L MUZ@K!!! after the jump…

  • Treasure Island – Check them out at Awesomefest, just last Saturday. They [presumably]  love treasure! And islands! So do I!
  • EMEFE [including Nick Kokkinis ’13] –  Hear them covering afrobeat legend and creator Fela Kuti. They’ve also got pay-as-much-as-you-want downloads on Bandcamp. Drummer and chief composer Miles Arntzen also holds down the beat for…
  • Superhuman Happiness – Brooklyn group led by Stuart D. Bogie of afrobeat heavy hitters Antibalas. Visit them on Bandcamp, where they also have music available on the [former] Radiohead model. Below is the video for their newest single, GMYL; the sound is pretty congruent with indie pop (as semi-lamented by Bogie in an Argus interview), but if you listen to Fall Down Seven Times [Stand Up Eight] you’ll have no doubts about their origins. You’ll also throughly enjoy yourself. Just sayin’.

      If they don’t sell out today, sure, but you’re better off buying them now – you can go to the Box Office and use your WesID/credit card/family heirloom if you don’t have two bucks on you. Do it!
