Joe Cuba CD Release Party Tomorrow

The so-called “father of boogaloo” music, Joe Cuba, passed away last year, and Fania Records is honoring the influential Puerto Rican musician with the release of a two-disc, 34-track box set. El Alcalde Del Barrio compiles digitally remastered recordings from original master tapes, including “Bang Bang” and “El Pito (I’ll Never Go Back to Georgia).” The Afrolicious party, in conjunction with Wax Poetics, will host the official Bay Area record release party for the album (which streets February 23), with New York’s Chico Mann performing a live set of Cuba’s songs, plus DJs Pleasuremaker and Señor Oz. It happens at the Elbo Room on Thursday, Feb. 11, starting at 9 p.m. $6, $8.
