AFRO FUNKÉ is back in Venice at Townhouse & Del Monte Speakeasy for one last 2018 stomp, just in time for the holidays! Your friendly resident good guys JEREMY SOLE and yours truly GLENN RED will be rockin’ the decks with those soulful, rhythmic, deep-rooted sounds from all over the world that have steadily packed the dance floor in Los Angeles’ westside for a decade and a half. Plus, in his AF debut, Ghana/LA’s DJ BLAQ PAGES brings the hot afrobeats repertoire that has been lighting up the city for the last few years.

…and it feels so good.

Some of you may remember the word that precedes the lyric above (courtesy of Peaches & Herb, or whomever wrote the song), but it definitely describes the way I feel about getting together with my Afro Funké family members–those on both sides of the turntables. What makes it even more special is that we’ll be together for the first time under the LA evening sky, out at the Levitt Pavilion in Pasadena. The event will mark our first move outside of the traditional night club setting, as well as our first venture together as a team outside of the westside/Santa Monica, across to the northeast corner of LA. To boot, we’ve got a fun and energetic opening act in Brazilian drum troupe BATALA LOS ANGELES. They’ll have the crowd gettin’ down big just in time for my boys JUNGLE FIRE to light up the stage with their hard-hitting afro-latin funk! Hope you get to join us! JUNE 21st 7:30pm.

**flyer: yours truly on the groundwork, Jeremy Sole on the perfect trimming and buffing.
