Photo: Electro-disco dance party with Afrolicious at Agave in Avon
Agave presents a funky-electro-disco party by Afrolicious on Thursday, March 3. Afrolicious, the live/electronic collective based in the San Francisco Bay Area, started out not as a band but as a club night at the famed Elbo Room in The Mission District in 2007. The format of an Afrolicious party was very open and included the DJs spinning the latest soulful dance music, including Afro-house, broken beat, modern funk and disco, alongside classics and re-edits and remixes of their favorite Afro-beat and salsa, with live percussionists and guest emcees and musicians. Eventually morphing into a live band led by the production and arrangement skills of Pleasuremaker, many dancers, DJs and producers began to take notice of their unique sound. Doors open at 9:30 p.m., with the 21-and-older show starting at 10 p.m., and tickets are $8 at http://www.agaveavon.com or at the door.
