LA: Fela Kuti Tribute Party with Rich Medina


"Jump N Funk," the original Fela tribute party is taking place this Saturday at The Front at The Vanguard in Los Angeles. Destroyer gets the party started and DJ Rich Medina takes it through the night. In the battle of the coasts, the west is certainly going to be the best this weekend.

The party is from 9pm to 2am, 21+ $10 BEFORE 11:30pm RSVP on Facebook. The inside scoop: if you mention to the parking attendant that you're there for the Jump N Funk Party you'll get a reduced parking price.
