Chico Mann (real name Marcos García) of Brooklyn Afrobeat band Antibalas is releasing a new album with frequent collaborator Captain Planet (real name Charlie B. Wilder), Night Visions, this Friday (2/24) via Bastard Jazz...
Todd Rundgren, Richard Thompson, Glen Hansard, Taj Mahal & Deva Majal, Bettye LaVette, Antibalas & more playing the tribute show at Carnegie Halll, and there's a live rehearsal show at City Winery the night before.
Pavo Pavo covered George Harrison's song -- with help from a 17-piece band which featured members of Lucius, Antibalas, San Fermin, Eleanor Friedberger and Sharon Van Etten's bands -- as a farewell to the now-shuttered Brooklyn venue.
You might know Marcos Garcia best for his work with the afrobeat band Antibalas, but he also leads the heavy psych band Here Lies Man, whose goal is to answer the question: "What if Black Sabbath played Afrobeat?"
