NYC: Tonight, Dragons of Zynth @ Le Poisson Rouge

Tonight, the Brooklyn indie-afro outfit Dragons of Zynth take over Le Poisson Rouge, with sets from Soft Circle and Christy + Emily as well.  The band is fronted by Ghanaian twin brothers, Aku and Akwetey, who handle vocals and guitars, as well as synths and various other noise-making devices. Often you'll find the brothers clad in glamorous costumes, occasionally incorporating face paint and feathers too. Expect a vibrant performance tonight. For more on DOZ check their website.
