You can catch DCDC Sunday afternoon at 3- and if I was you- I wouldn’t miss it. This isn’t ballet, it’s not the opera, you don’t go and sit on your hands to stop yourself from looking at your watch: it’s full force, get in a funky frenzy, body slamming, foot stomping amazing dance. Think Michael Jackson turned up to 11 with a body that is sculpted out of marble times a whole company of beautiful people. Especially, Susie Payne and Sparkle Williams- who I’ve seen cut a rug in Drexel Dave’s living room- and instantly become awestruck.
Saxamble won’t be back around for a bit- but, they are also fun. Think a full jazz band- minus the brass section. They have a groove that’ll move you. Closest thing to compare to them: Lenny Pickett and the Borneo Horns.
To anyone who complains about living in Dayton OH- you just ain’t making the best of it. This town has enough to keep you cultured up, and still live on the cheap. LadySmith Black Mambazo will be at Miami in Oxford on Monday and Columbus on Tuesday- if you need more food for the soul.
