Gig Alert – March 2005

Tuesday, March 29th, 2005

The first of the month is just about here, and that means Afroskull is taking it
to the stage on Friday night.

PLEASE NOTE: We’ll be at the “Ace of Clubs” this month and NOT at the Parkside Lounge, which is our usual first of the month gig. The Parkside Lounge shows will resume next month.

The Ace of Clubs is located downstairs from the Acme restaurant at 9 Great Jones St. between Broadway and Lafayette. Our show starts at 9PM.

We’ll have the full horn section in tow, plus a special surprise for April Fool’s Day. Please join us for a solid set of super-heavy funk and twisted jazz/rock – just the way you like it.

Friday, April 1st – 9:00
Afroskull live at Ace of Clubs

March at the Parkside Lounge

Wednesday, March 2nd, 2005

Another month draws to a close, and that means Afroskull is back at the Parkside Lounge on Friday night. The Parkside shows have been bangin’ lately, and we’re going to do our part to keep it going, and we’ll have the full horn section along for the ride. Go down a little early for the Parkside’s happy hour and then take in a set of super-charged Afroskull grooves.

Afroskull in Brooklyn

Thursday, February 17th, 2005

Afroskull takes it to “the better borough” this weekend as we descend on Freddy’s Bar in Park Slope on Friday, 2/18 at 10:30pm.

Freddy’s is the coolest bar in Brooklyn and there’s never a cover so come down and get down with AFROSKULL!

And don’t forget to pick up your copy of Afroskull Does Black Sabbath at the show, or from the merch page.

Your favorite funk/rock orchestra is back with two gigs this weekend.

The three-piece horn section will be in full effect as we return to the Parkside for our monthly gig, as well as our first sojourn into Rockland County:

Friday 2/4 – Parkside Lounge, E. Houston and Attorney St., NYC – 8pm – $5 Our last show at the Parkside was one of our best ever – and we were just getting warmed up! Check out the Parkside’s happy hour till 8pm.

Saturday 2/5 – Casa Del Sol, 104 Main St., Nyack, NY – 10pm We’re getting back to our New Orleans roots for a Mardi Gras party at Casa Del Sol. We’ll be throwing in some special N’Awlins covers to celebrate the occasion. This is also the band’s first gig in Rockland County, where the very earliest proto-Skull was spawned …

Rocklanders, this is the show you’ve been waiting for!

And don’t forget, our new CD, AFROSKULL DOES BLACK SABBATH, is available at the shows, and online in the Merch page.

‘Monster For The Masses’ still getting props

Our debut CD was #16 on’s list of the top 25 CDs of 2004! We were also

#6 on the list of the ten best funk CDs of the year. We didn’t have the heart to tell them it was released in 2000. Thank you!

P.S. Buddy D – a New Orleans original – rest in peace
