Ahead of Brooklyn’s Googa Mooga’s Food and Music Festival – Superfly took Red Baraat on a tour of some of the participating restaurants to chomp some veggie delights. We ended up at Brooklyn Bowl jamming with Toubab Krewe after sweet eats at Rosemary’s NYC and arepas at Caracas. Check it out!
Delighted to announce we’ll be returning to Austin for two weekends in October playing the Austin City Limits Festival! Details in the shows section. 2 Words:
Very Excited For Spring Festival Action. Check the tourdates section for info on WOBEON in Austin happening this weekend, FESTIVAL INTERNATIONAL in Lafayette, LA, THE GREAT GOOGA MOOGA in Brooklyn, DEL FEST in Cumberland, MD, and WAKARUSA in Ozark, Ak. There will be some touring in cities around the festivals too. And a bunch of exciting stuff coming this summer that we can’t announce just yet.
We’re so happy that The New York Daily News and Wall St. Journal devoted big features to tonight’s Festival of Colors show at Webster Hall. Each made some errors on when the show was happening. For you, a correction of the record.

Both shows will feature a full Red Baraat set and we’ll be introducing some friends we hope you’ll be as excited about as we are:

(As electronically versed as Röyksopp with the instrumental entrances and exits, each element rides on a roller coaster track in sync with the rest. Blurring the lines, again, between pop vocals and thoughtful composition)

Holi Celebration Mithai for the first 250 people to arrive from Bittersweet NYC.
We’ll be making our first trip to Austin for SXSW 2013. The good people at the Austin American Statesman have perceptively made us a staff pick to see.

Our First Mardi Gras tour and it was EPIC.
The Blue Nile. Tipitinas’ biggest night of the year- Lundi Gras with Galactic. Meeting the Big Chief. Parading through the Treme and French Quarter with Just Us krewe. Capping it off with two big sets at Hi Ho with the Mardi Gras Indian Orchestra. Thanks to all our hosts, to everyone that came out, and to this wonderful city that has embraced us so… We leave a little frazzled, some of us bedazzled, and with full hearts ready to return to Congo Square on March 24.
