Atlas Soul and Timbila at Regattabar

Cross-posted with the Boston World Music Meetup Group (http://www.meetup.com/BostonWorldMusic/events/95042372/)

From the Facebook event page (https://www.facebook.com/events/228347917297759/):

A very special night featuring two unique band that sound like no one else!

TIMBILA blazes ecstatic African rock with an East Village edge. The trance of African spirit possession merges with the trance of free-spirited head-bangers. Surreal buzzing timbila, hypnotic dream melodies of mbira, stinging guitar.

TIMBILA is part of a new wave of world rock bands creating music without borders. In their sound, the trance of African spirit possession becomes one with the trance of free-spirited headbangers—all part of a rock ‘n’ roll stew that is melodious, lyrical, liberating, vibrating, fierce and free, and always danceable. The buzzing rhythmic attack of the Mozambican xylophone (timbila) and the hypnot
ic thrumming of Zimbabwean thumb piano (mbira) join with the sting of guitar in grooves that are deeply funky, and an alluring bed for vocals that are sweet, sassy and feminine, and harmonized in celestial English, Chopi and Shona. No other band in the world sounds like Timbila!

....and we all know about what Atlas Soul will bring :)

We will meet in the lobby at 7pm.

This will be an epic show, Atlas Soul show at 7:30pm, and Timbila show starts at 10pm. Combo tix available for $22 at:

For group seating, go ahead and buy your ticket as soon as you can, but then email me (Kenny) your full name, so I can add you to the list to submit to Regattabar, so they can seat us together. Email me by Wed., 1/16 to get on the group seating list.

As usual, if people are up for it, we can meet afterward nearby in Harvard Sq for food/drinks/conversation. Join us!

    Apologies everyone, as the "meetup" portion did not go so well. I arrived late to the pre-event dinner, and the dinner went long, and did not finish until after 7:30pm, and so the plan to be in the lobby at 7 and meet everyone did not go well. Luckily Atlas Soul and Timbila rocked the house! Hope everyone at least had a good time at the performance (though I did not understand the Regattabar policy for the double show, clearing out the seating area in between shows). I will do better next time.

    Can't believe I have never seen Atlas Soul before this meetup! Absolutely amazing. Timbila was great too. As usual, great meetup with Boston Culture Club. Thanks, Kenny!

    Regattabar was a little disorganized. Atlas Soul and Timbila were both fantastic.

    I got the ticket and would like to arrange to sit with the group.

    Great idea Karen! I was actually thinking about a pre-meetup for dinner, since the Timbila show does not start until 10pm and I'm not sure how long they will go for. Drinks afterward might be a possibility for those interested. I will create a meetup for dinner beforehand to take advantage of the discount at Henrietta's Table at 5:30pm

      I'm fine with hosting. This should be one fun night!

      It will be fun. And if I still have energy after the show, I might be up for drinks. Especially if I can get that scotch I was unable to get at Friday night's event. :)

    Hi Folks, I bought a ticket online for both shows ($24.50), but won't be able to attend. : ( If anyone is interested in purchasing my ticket, that would be great. I could send it to you online and you could mail me the money. Thanks.

    Another reminder for this show, that you want to sit with the group, to buy your ticket and email me your full name if you have not done so already by 11:59PM ET, Wed 1/16. I will submit a list of names to Regattabar by Thurs 1/17. I think so far I only have a few names from this group, and we have 14 RSVPs :)

    Henrietta's Table.*

    I love Henrietta's Table. The website is: http://www.henriettastable.com
    If anyone wants to meet for dinner there before the show, please email me through Meetup or at sword [masked]. We'll need to meet around 5:30 since we're meeting for the music at 7pm.
