Although yours truly is stationed across the pond, I have managed to grow fond attachments for “Sleepy” Doug Shaw’s HIGHLIFE blend of african and pop melodies and the extra awesome psyched out prog of Prince Rama (of Ayodhya). Top this show off with Amen Dunes and the fact that it’s a Showpaper Benefit, and you most likely have a recipe for one of the shows that sticks out of the blur that is Brooklyn’s music scene.
