As SXSW begins to creep up on us, things generally get pretty crazy around here in terms of shows. There is an absurd amount of things to do this week, much of which is accredited to bands touring through our parts before heading South to Texas.
The Very Best are just another example of such, hitting up several major cities before heading down to Austin. With a group that features members from Africa and London, North American tour dates are often hard to come by. Lucky for us, they are part of TAXLO's party this Saturday at Sonar. This event also features Ninjasonik, JD Sampson of Le Tigre, and much more.
The combination of Radioclit and Esau Mwamwaya is The Very Best, a group that's made a habit of teaming up with huge acts and throwing in some signature flavor. They broke out with a killer mixtape last year, and have since released their debut album, The Warm Heart of Africa. While Africa provides a strong backdrop, cross-cultural themes are heavy throughout. All of this aside, the music will force you to move, shake, and twist in every which enjoyable direction.
