Just Stupid Good

Posted by Andrew R Tonry on Thu, Sep 3, 2009 at 10:18 PM

I was looking for interesting bands, hoping they had upcoming dates in Portland. Well—bad news first—the Antibalas won't be here anytime soon. Their run with the Fela Kuti musical in New York continues, and it seems, is moving to Broadway. (Actually—note to self—get tickets while you're there in October.) But something sweet came out of this: Antibalas horns, with the Roots rhythm, backing up Public Enemy. This is, without a doubt, the best thing ever to happen on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon (and perhaps the best thing that will ever happen there).
