Sunday looks to be great. If you've never experienced Antibalas, then you are in for a treat. Antibalas has a powerful sound, as well as the powerful message within the music. Please make an effort to check them out. Anyone who is disapointed in the lineup on Sunday should be pleasantly supprised. Check them out!

Any insight as to what kind af music they play? What style? Cause their name doesn't help much, as is the case with almost all of the world music on the bill.
And you get these posts where people are baffled as to why no one has heard of 'em. Pretty obvious to me.

MUSICALLY THESE GUYS ARE TOTALLY WORLD-CLASS. Pure Afro-Beat riddems
and it is interesting to see them on the bill with Femi(any chance of seeing
him onstage w/ them?!?!?)----an absolute killer rhythm section and a horn
section that bows to no one. The kind of band that could flex for an hour and just be getting warmed up to take it even higher. Stone groove.

Check antibalas.com! They've got two great albums out, and one on the way in June. It's a solid Afrobeat sound, with a deep funk/latin vibe. Super solid on record, but the live show goes beyond. Heavy Fela Kuti influences. PLenty of people have heard of them. They've got quite a following, from their home base on the east coast, to out here on the western end, as well as europe and beyond. Check 'em out.
