The beginning is near.

Greetings friends and family! Welcome to the Beat. Hopefully you have found your way here after receiving an invitation to our benefit/ send-off party on December 18th at Roy in Santa Barbara. If so, please pass on the word to anyone who would enjoy a night of reckless abandon, fueled by humanitarian crude.
Fun things happened today. The Crymuscles now have a room at the El Prado on State street for the night of the Roy gig. I'm jealous. I've always wanted to stay there. Alas, scientists don't get rooms booked for them.
We're hastily selling belongings and boxing the few things we plan to keep before departing for Nairobi. We have CARS! COUCHES! GUITARS! You name it!

The benefit is going to be awesome. Many thanks, too, to the far-away friends who won't be able to make it but have contributed to our noble cause! You are saints and soldiers.
I guess it's time for another musical post.

This one is yet another from our namesake album, The Indestructible Beat of Soweto: Vol.1.
This track improves even the most gloomy of moods and should get you flipping through old photo albums within 2-3 consecutive plays.

Sobabamba- Udokotela Shange Namajaha

OK, the dog needs a midnight snack and I need hit the hay.
