Femi Kuti

When: Tue., Jan. 15 2013

As scions of famous dynasties go, I'll take Femi Kuti over George W. Bush any day of the week. The eldest son of Afrobeat pioneer Fela Kuti has always stayed within shouting distance of his father's supremely funky roots, resisting the crossover inclinations of other famous kids like Ziggy Marley or Matthew and Gunnar Nelson. In the wake of multiple Grammy nominations and a slot on the Red Hot Chili Peppers' European tour, Femi and his band Positive Force will be storming the Boulder Theater (2032 14th St., Boulder, with a repertoire including songs from the forthcoming No Place for My Dream, which the bandleader describes as his most political album to date. Showtime is 7:30 p.m., tickets are $25, all-ages. — Bill Forman
