June 24: Albino! at Cloverdale Downtown Plaza

Posted on Thu, Jun 23, 2011 at 12:48 PM

The music of the band Albino! may represent the most entertaining form of protesting out there. Born out of the Afrobeat movement pioneered by Fela Kuti, Albino! live up to their radical roots. With an underlying funk essence of “heavy, heavy” beats, a dominating horn section and pounding percussion, the San Francisco–based band creates a danceable conglomeration of sounds sure to get anyone’s feet tapping—or stomping, as the case may be. The band’s shows come complete with African dance and costumes to seal the deal. Albino! appear as part of the Cloverdale Arts Alliance’s Friday Night Live series on Friday, June 24, at the Cloverdale Downtown Plaza. Cloverdale Boulevard at Broad Street, Cloverdale. 7pm. Free. www.cloverdaleartsalliance.org.
