San Francisco’s beloved Afrolicious party breaks out of its Elbo Room base for an East Coast mini-tour. Residents Pleasuremaker and Senor Oz have spent the last four years channeling tropicalia, Afrobeat, funk and disco classics, and live percussion into a mighty good time. They’ve worked with Thievery Corporation and with artists from Burkina Faso, Trinidad and Tobago, and Honduras. It’s all documented on their mixtape series, but this is one of the few nights that’s (almost) as much about community as it is about music.
