It's always a party when Antibalas plays. This Brooklyn-based Afrobeat collective—who's collaborated with TV on the Radio and shared stages with Amy Winehouse and Paul Simon—plays its final show of the year, touting its eponymous fifth album. Theirs is a vibrant concoction of funked-up, sinuous guitar lines, vigorous brass blasts and groovy organ riffs: You won't find a better musical pick-me-up than this lively crew. Well-matched support comes from Red Baraat, a live-wire outfit that explores the exuberant Punjabi wedding-band tradition, as well as Bollywood classics and original tunes.
