Global A Go-Go visits southern Africa this week with a set of music from South Africa (naturally), Zimbabwe, and Madagascar (that's Malagasy singer Jean Emilien pictured above).
Also this week: the Senegalese tinge, Afrobeat meets rap, and the glorious global sound of brass-rock circa 1972.

First we'll warm up with plenty of Chicago blues and suchlike, before switching gears to celebrate the guitar playing of Duane Allman, in honor of what would have been his 68th birthday.

Kevin Moist of Evening Fires and Deep Water Acres has curated something exceptional for SOB tonight. We're going to have an old-fashioned psychedelic Japanese freak-out just like your parents used to have. Moist has put together an eye-opening and hair-raising set of prime Japanese psych covering roughly the mid-80s through the mid-90s. This really is something special. And educational.
Put your feet up, take command of the couch, and have your mind blown.
Big, big thanks to Moist for taking the time to craft this for SOB.
