Budos Band & Voodoo Funk Tonight!
Just discovered the above tonight.
After the Budos Band show, Voodoo Funk's Frank Gossner will unleash the funkiest vinyl ever pressed south of the Sahara desert. The German ex-pat spent three years on a vinyl digging road trip across Western Africa where he unearthed all sorts of treasures, from Guinean Mandingo-Psych to Ghanaian Funk, Raw Nigerian Afrobeat or Twangy Garage Funk from Benin. The low lit back room of the club with its large wooden dance floor and potent sound system might just be the most fitting venue for this unique night of deep and earthy funkyness. http://www.voodoofunk.com
Frank has said on his blog:
I secured a new home for the Voodoo Funk party at Brooklyn's Union Pool. The first one will go down on March 14th and the Budos Band will open up the night at 9:00 pm with their intoxicating blend of Hypnotic Afro Funk and Psychedelic Soul Instrumentals. Starting directly after the show I'm going to unleash the funkiest vinyl ever pressed south of the Sahara desert. The party will continue on the second Saturday of each month. For April 11th I booked the astonishing Mandingo Ambassadors.
