Free Heat in January

January 4th, 2011

The last weekend of January features two chances to catch the Opposition Party: on Thursday the 27th, the we return to steam up the funky windows at The Whistler, for two sets of afrobeat and reggae percolation.

Then, on Saturday the 29th, members of the OP join DJ friends Soulphonetics at the Butterfly Social Club for an impromptu live jam while they spin world soul beats (view the flyer).

The best part: both shows have no cover!

[UPDATE]: The Opposition Party is excited to add a show on February 2 opening for 2010 Grammy nominee and New Orleans Trombone ambassador Trombone Shorty at Lincoln Hall!
