Afrobeat For Ya Soul! One LAST Dance!:

Bossa Bistro And Lounge
2463 18th St NW
Thursday, March 28th, 2013
9:30pm – 1:30am | $5

It’s been four long years of an underground movement/party called Afrobeat For Ya Soul!

We’ve have resident DJ, DJ Underdog spin the best groves from the motherland with the back bone of his sound being Afrobeat!

We expanded and included local Afrobeat bands perform live in the incense filled space of Bossa Lounge.

Face paint, influenced by Fela Kuti (the father of afrobeat), became a staple of the party, making the party more interactive and creative.

With all the success of Afrobeat, we have decided to come to a close and move onto new ventures.

All we can say is thank you. Four years ago Lunchbox Theory offered up our energy to create a safe space in DC for any and everyone to show up and sweat. One Red Light, one Black Light, come in your curlers, come in your beater, sweat out your hair. Afrobeat created the freedom, but you built it. You showed up after a long month, every month for 4 years and we MOVED.

March 28th, 2013 we are going to do it for the last time. We will shake and sweat and pray and burn and give and paint until we cry, until the floor at Bossa finally falls through…

The normal goodies apply. Face paint. Art. Underdog. Cupcakes. But most importantly come find heaven with us one last time.
