When: Sat., Jan. 21, 9 p.m. 2017
A self-proclaimed “post Afrobeat dance explosion,” NOMO’s wide range of influences (from Eno to Funkadelic), along with the ridiculous variety of instruments that the band utilizes (there’s an electric mbira, electric saw blade gamelan, and a wah-wah, just to name a few) have helped to solidify their status as yet another great band to come out of the University of Michigan. They’re enough to make any State fan a turncoat. Their most recent album, Ghost Rock, is totally sweet, and their shows are fantastic. Doors open at 9 p.m.; 208 S. First St., Ann Arbor; blindpigmusic.com; Tickets are $12.
