Tony Allen with band, metal rasta guitarist mostly hidden
The rest of the extremly funky band were very impressive too. Particularly striking was when the keyboard guy doubled the trumpet parts on a vocoder, something I'd never seen before. Unfortunately, they were never presented, so I have no idea who they were.

An unexpected fringe benefit before the concert was the solitary dance performance of a neatly dressed OL on the half-empty floor to the afrobeat tracks the DJ was playing. Oddly abstract movements that nobody (including her not-so-neat boyfriend) seemed to watch except me. Cool!
