Adrian Younge and the Black Dynamite Orchestra totally smash!
Adrian Younge and the Black Dynamite Orchestra have been featured on Wax Poetics recently and played at the Scoot Inn during SXSW. How they flew under my radar, I don't know. I'm super pissed at myself for missing this band. Will someone please bring these guys back around to Austin?!!!!!!!!
Inspired by the Blaxploitation movies of the 1970s, musician Adrian Young (not the guy from No Doubt) is a Wax Poetics artist. He and his crew there took Sundance by storm with above performance. I first saw this video below that made me look them up. Turn it up loud!
