Antibalas Returns to S.O.B.’s in April 2008

On April 10th, S.O.B.’s, presents an high energy live performance by Afrobeat pioneers Antibalas. The Afrobeat band with the Spanish name (meaning bulletproof) is a multicultural Brooklyn-based ensemble, that has established itself as one of New York’s most electrifying bands with a knack for live performances.

Antibalas, a longtime S.O.B.’s stalwart, released its fourth full-length studio album, Security to much acclaim in 2007 and the 15-member band has been touring steadily since then. The last time that Antibalas was at S.O.B.’s was Halloween 2007 and the crowd was treated to a spooky intense jam session, as the members of the group dressed in zombie costumes and opened with a spirited cover of "Thriller", and followed with the usual fodder of fantastic music from the ensemble.On April 10th, Antibalas’ energetic and dynamic live show promises to be a boisterous evening. Come check out the ensemble for their first S.O.B.’s show of 2008 and a night filled with great music, food and dancing.
