Sights & Sounds is your weekly guide to the Bay Area arts scene through the eyes and ears of local artists. Our guest is Krista Fatka: comedian and co-producer of Festa Comedy night at Festa Lounge in San Francisco.

Today we are featuring the high-energy grooves of Afrobeat practitioners, Albino! This ten-piece ensemble includes dancers and eye-popping costumes - along with hypnotic percussion and heavy, heavy horns! They’ll be celebrating the birthday of Fela Kuti, their Nigerian musical muse, on Friday, October 19, at San Francisco’s Elbo Room. Music starts at 9pm.
