For the past few months I’ve had in frequent rotation on my iTunes the album by Atlanta-based hip-hop band AFAR. As far as I’m concerned, AFAR has got the complete package with tight melodies, clever MCing, driving beats, and live instrumentation. They even have a political conscience — check this song they did on the world water crisis called "Stand Up, Act Now!"
So I’m excited that the band is performing this Saturday, May 3, at Dizzy’s Club at Jazz at Lincoln Center. Starting at 1pm, the gig is FREE to the public, first-come-first-served. Dizzy’s is a pretty tiny space, so it will fill up fast.
