If the early 20th will be remembered for the plethora of newspapers that then spread across the land, the early 21st will surely be remembered for the prevalence of blogs that have spread across the internet. Unlike their print predecessors of course, blogs are inherently world wide, and need not limit themselves to a particular geography. Nevertheless some of the very best of them do just that. Why? Because the global begins and ends at home, and nobody better covers the local than those who live there.
Fresh off of a killer performance at Sweatstock and an even bigger one a few weeks ago at Ultra, it seems Afrobeta has one of the most prolific performance schedules of any local band. The transcendent duo will hit the stage yet again this Saturday at Grand Central as they continue rock crowds like only Cuci and Smurphio can. As it if weren’t enough to provide a guaranteed amazing show, Afrobeta’s new EP Wig Party is also available for free on Facebook.
Wig Party is Afrobeta’s first release since their 2011 EP Under the Streets. The band was ready for a change of pace after an even busier overseas tour schedule over the past couple of years, including stops in Glastonbury, Burning Man, Ultra Brazil and Space Ibiza. We’ll definitely be hitting Grand Central to watch some truly global local guys.
