Celebrate Brooklyn!: Theophilus London / Les Nubians / Aabaraki
Saturday, July 6, 2013
7:00 p.m.–8:00 p.m.
Theophilius London, “who seems to have studied his Prince, his Andre 3000, and, especially and perhaps most surprisingly, his PM Dawn,” (Philadelphia Inquirer) comes off “like a boastful, macho Janelle Monáe [who] attempts to bridge the 1950s and the 2050s.” (Details) With the French-Cameroonian sisters Les Nubians, whose “unique Afropean soul lifts the spirit and moves the feet,” (USA Today) and the reduction stutter funk of Brooklyn’s Aabaraki.
