PBS 106.7FM and The Public Opinion have joined forces to present Scatter Scatter: voodoo afro-funk on Saturday October 30th at the Hi Fi. Scatter Scatter takes you back to 1970's Lagos and the birth of afrobeat, shaking it 'til dawn at Fela Kuti’s 'Afrika Shrine' nightclub. It's all about this hypnotic music and dance movement that combines West African highlife and traditional rhythms with funk, jazz and a powerful political message.

Scatter Scatter brings you the finest afro-crate-digging DJ's Manchild, Systa BB, Mr Fish & Future Roots, playing the hardest classic and contemporary afro-funk as well as some of Australia's deepest African-influenced bands and live acts. For the launch party we are joined by Melbourne's own 17 piece afrobeat heavyweights The Public Opinion Afro Orchestra live on stage, performing songs from their recent ARIA nominated debut album 'Do Anything Go Anywhere'.

Live African voodoo dance and drumming acts will perform on the night in the scatter market place so paint ya face, get ya beads on n' head down to Scatter Scatter, Melbourne’s first afrobeat club night! Tickets $15 @ the door. Doors 9pm.
