At Mezzanine, the fun continues with Brooklyn deepfunk revivalists THE BUDOS BAND and SF’s own world-funk heroes AFROLICIOUS and a closing DJ Set by MOTION POTION. The BUDOS BAND come from the same Brooklyn deep funk soul revival community that has given us Sharon Jones, Charles Bradley, Antibalas & Lee Fields but unlike some of their peers, the Budos are in no way a polished throwback to the suit-wearing 60’s. If anything, their energy and attitude is more punk than funk and their shows tend to get quite rowdy (although usually moreso onstage than off). The Budos will be joined by one of SF’s rising stars, AFROLICIOUS. The house band for the seminal Mission dance night has become a force in their own right. Tickets for this show will definitely sell out.
