Plenty of regulars of the former Red Fez fondly recall the fabulous nights Atash filled the intimate spot with rich, wondrous sounds from different parts of the world. It may have been “exotic” for a few newbies, but for many others, it was a musical education. The band’s eclectic mix of styles gave audiences more exposure to global grooves they may otherwise have not gotten to hear.
Perhaps Red Fez is only a memory now, but Atash is as vibrant and incredibly talented as ever, and they’re continuing their new residency throughout November at Flamingo Cantina, 515 E. 6th St. You can see them there tonight. The music begins at 9 p.m.
Treat yourself to a wonderful evening. Recommended.
