Budos Band, DJ Ras J, D-Town Brass

When: Sun., Feb. 20, 9 p.m. 2011

The Budos Band's music sounds like the sort of thing one would find on an Ethiopiques compilation or a Fela Kuti album. This supersized Staten Island group can trace the roots of its sound to the various strains of African dance-funk music that gained international prominence in the 1970s, as well as the similarly minded stuff created by stateside contemporaries such as Afrobeat enthusiast James Brown. As the Budos Band has proven over the course of three eminently enjoyable albums, however, the retro-flavored bag they have is all their own. It certainly ain't no drag. DJ Ras J and D-Town Brass open. —David Raposa
