The recent revival of continental African and diasporic sounds in clubs throughout America and Europe didn't happen by accident. DJs like brothers Señor Oz and Pleasuremaker have put serious work into making their bumping, crowd-pleasing weekly Afrolicious a must for both Mission residents and visitors from all over. They're celebrating the event's three-year anniversary over two nights with some notable guest bands and DJs, alongside their usual crew of drummers and MCs. On Thursday, they bring out local 11-piece pan-African band Aphrodesia, and on Friday it's New York–based Chico Mann — the live electro-Afrobeat band fronted by Antibalas guitarist Marquitos Garcia — and guest DJ Sabo.
