Following their incendiary set at The Mitre on Saturday 5th March, 119 piece afrobeat band The Sea Slugs will be performing at The Hobbit, Bevois Valley Road, on Friday 25th March. The band will play an extensive set of live original afrobeat, filled with volatile, danceable grooves, catchy melodies and searing solos.
The Sea Slugs’ unique music is borne out of a collective condemnation of intolerance, a strong sense of solidarity with fellow humans, and a passion for the music of Nigerian afrobeat pioneer Fela Kuti. The result is a visceral, often turbulent sound with a subversive edge. The product of a wide array of musical influences and political and humanitarian motivations, The Sea Slugs’ contemporary take on Afrobeat is both potent and communicable; their sound and intent are indivisible.
The Sea Slugs will be on stage at 10pm. Free entry before 10pm, £2.50 after. The Hobbit
