Starting off a Monday with good music is the key to a great week so I ventured out to Brooklyn Bowl and caught Kahli Abdu & VHS Safari with openers, Pegasus Warning.
Pegasus Warning started off the night with a varied arsenal of upbeat tunes that featured great vocals, a killer drummer and a guitarist that loved to bounce notes over each other. Their quick 45 minute set had the early arriving crowd begging for more when they exited stage left.
During the downtime between sets I had the chance to go backstage with the cool cats from Kahli Abdu & VHS Safari and snapped a few photos before their set which you can view below!
Kahli Abdu & VHS Safari are a mix of many different genres so to put a label such as “Hip-Hop” on them may be unfair to this bunch of extremely talented musicians. They label themselves as Afro-Electro which is a decent description. To me – their sound was big, with big vocals and big personalities that had an Island flair to it, almost tribal at times but always with a killer groove to dance to. Kahli Abdu & VHS Safari is a great party band and will be catching up with them as soon as possible! Be sure to check out their recently released LP A.R.T. Project on Spotify, iTunes and Soundcloud.
