Music: Femi Kuti

Sat., July 14



The late Fela Kuti's Afro-beat rhythms continue to percolate through American music, from the faithful homage of Antibalas to the shambling dance jams of !!! and LCD Soundsystem. His son FEMI KUTI embraces comparisons to his father, issuing equally vibrant recordings such as 1999's Shoki Shoki. Femi hasn't released any new music in several years (not counting this spring's The Definitive Collection), instead relying on stunning live performances to draw crowds. He plays Sat., JULY 14, in Little Five Points at the Variety Playhouse. $20-$22.50. 9 p.m. 1099 Euclid Ave. 404-524-7354. (MR)
