If you love the music of Fela Kuti, often called the “James Brown of Africa,” then check out Big Mean Sound Machine at the Pour House on Wednesday.
The 13-piece band with horns, organs, synthesizers and heaps of percussion was formed in 2009 in Upstate New York, and now tours the country more than a third of the year. It’s Afro-funk that must be seen live to fully appreciate.
Tickets are $8 in advance and $10 at the door. Doors are at 8 p.m. and the show should start around 9 p.m. Visit www.charlestonpourhouse.com for more information.
