Chop & Quench (the Fela! band), Debo Band and Questlove are coming to LPR on Wednesday, October 15 for Felabration! That’s quite exciting news on its own, but now you’ve got another reason to grab your tickets for the show if you haven’t already.
All advance ticket buyers for Felebration! on 10/15 will be automatically entered to win the recently released Fela – Box Set #3 from Knitting Factory Records. (*Note: tickets must be purchased before the day of the show to be considered.*)
Fela – Box Set #3 features the vinyl reissues of seven choice Fela Kuti albums selected by Brian Eno, whose musical outlook was profoundly influenced by hearing Fela (“This is the music of the future,” he told the Talking Heads):
In addition to the Fela LPs London Scene (1971), Shakara (1972), Gentleman (1973), Afrodisiac (1973), Zombie (1976), Upside Down (1976) and I.T.T. (1980), the box set also includes a 16.5″x 22.5″ poster and a 12″x 12″ 12-page book with a foreword by Eno, album notes from Chris May, translated lyrics, and photos from Bernard Matussiere.
