THREE CHORD TRUTH PRESENTS
AFROSONIC RESONANCE COLLECTIVE
FEATURING THEO CROKER

THURSDAY MARCH 31, 2016, 11:30pm
$10 COVER

BABY’S ALL RIGHT
146 BROADWAY
BROOKLYN, NY

NEW YORK – Three Chord Truth presents “Afrosonic”, a celebration of dance, funk, rock and Afrobeat, featuring the AfroPhysicist himself, Theo Croker. The show will be hosted at Baby’s All Right, the premier music club of Brooklyn, on March 31st at 11:30pm.

The young and supremely talented Theo Croker leads a new outfit, Afrosonic Resonance Collective, on an odyssey of rhythm exploration that ripples across genres. With phenomenal musicality and diverse instrumentation, Resonance calls to mind the great Nigerian master Fela Kuti, while adding their own postmodern imprint. Dancers groove to pulsing beats as Croker paints aural landscapes with vibrations, lathering crowds to fervor and exaltation.

Since releasing AfroPhysicist in 2014 to celebratory reviews, Croker has toured Europe, Asia and North America. At the end of 2015, he released the EP DVRKFUNK, showcasing his wide-ranging chops. “In an effort to remain honest, music must serve not only as an artistic expression of humanity through tones and rhythms, but it must also reflect the society that gave it life,” says Croker. “My life experiences have allowed me to share an eclectic, global viewpoint. DVRKFUNK gives listeners a look into that world.”

ARC will perform at 11:30pm. They will be followed by two other acts on the bill.

Q and the Move is the explosive result of Bronx native Quoom Lewi’s subway percussion and rap duo joining forces with Nathaniel Mallon’s Shanghai stoner rock and blues outfit, Georgia Sam. Combining African rhythms with American soul and New York City hip hop, Q leads the Move on a spiritual quest of love through music, rapping about joy and pain while lead singer Rindy Portfolio lends a melodic lyric over the psychedelic dropbeat.

The East River Boys are a brand new, Brooklyn-based band consisting of five multi-instrumental musicians who immediately knew it was their fate to form a group after a late night jam in a Bushwick apartment. With experience playing live from Singapore to Paris, the East River Boys will make their New York debut at Afrosonic.
