This was one of the best shows I've seen in months—a goddamn 13-piece African band. And while it wasn't under-attended by any means, a lot of young people are missing out on how fucking amazing, cathartic, spiritual and danceable Femi Kuti's afrobeat is. More photos after the jump.

UPDATE:
The sound is utterly blown out so you might as well mute it, but this little video clip I nabbed gives a little sense of the motion.
