Monday Night October 14th at 8pm: FELA KUTI - Black Man's Cry

He has often been considered Africa's version of Bob Marley, and for good reason. But his political intensity was far greater.  With his synthesis of West African highlife, funk, jazz, and traditional Yoruba rhythms, underneath call-and-response vocals covering potent political and social topics, Fela's Afrobeat sound spread throughout the African Diaspora and the entire world.  This 1992 collection captures highlights of his band's incredible grooves and powerful delivery in the mid-'70's.  Nigeria's Fela Anikulapo-Kuti would be 75 this Tuesday if he were still with us.

Thursday Night the 17th between 8pm & Midnight: NEKO CASE - The Worse Things Get...

Check out Neko Case's first couple records, and you might consider her a honky-tonk/country singer.  She actually got her start playing drums in a punk band.  ....No wonder we love her.  Case's latest album comes following a series of rough spots, including the loss of both parents, and a grandmother she was even closer to.  And then there's the mother she overheard in the Honululu airport.... This new one has been getting a tidal wave of great reviews, as both her strongest and her strangest.
