re-return of Afroskull

Saturday, October 1st, 2011

We’re back! (Did we even go somewhere?) A little older, a bit wiser and one louder. That’s right, Afroskull returns! Jason is out of traction (we have rebuilt him…we have the technology) and he’s got a funky itch to scratch.

So pack a bag, siphon some gas and get on down to get down at the Bowery Poetry Club! Tell a friend and bring your sister, freak funk flies again!

Skullsound Music Presents: The Outer Borough Brass Band

Saturday, May 28th, 2011

Hello everybody. Afroskull is taking a little vacation right now, but we’ll be back in a few months. Until then, please check out our new alter-ego, The Outer Borough Brass Band, playing some of the traditional New Orleans brass band repertoire. The OBBB is led by Afroskull’s Joe Scatassa (on sousaphone!), along with a rotating cast of characters that includes Afroskull’s Justin Flynn, Jeff Pierce, Jason Isaac, Matt Iselin and Seth Moutal. It’s a great new band – if you’re in New York City, check ’em out!

Our next show at the Bowery Poetry Club is coming up quickly, and it will be a bit different. Our drummer Jason is out of commission with a broken arm, but we are pleased to welcome special guest drummer Dylan Fusillo (known for his work with Antibalas and many others) who will keep things nice and funky. Afroskull hits at 10pm, followed by two sets from our good friends BuzzUniverse!

Happy New Year, fine friends of the funk. The holidays are behind us, our resolutions are in tatters…and our hiatus is over! That’s right, we’ll be kicking it up as we pick it up right where we left off at the Bitter End. So strap on your boogie boots, mind the slush puddles, and chase away those deep and dark mid-winter blues at our first gig of 2011. See ya there!
