The Zigaboo Modeliste Birthday Bash
On Saturday December 27, Joseph Zigaboo Modeliste will celebrate his 60th birthday. The Meters founding drummer will appear at San Francisco’s Cafu Nord where he will be joined by a collection of Bay Area players. Some special guests are pledged for the evening and given the fact that Modeliste has gigged with such artists as Keith Richards and Dr. John over the years, while performers like the Beastie Boys, Public Enemy and A Tribe Called Quest have sampled his beats, it should be quite an evening. Opening the show will be area musician Bhi Bhiman.
