Nightlife Agenda Podcast and Pick of the Week

By Fritz Hahn

Nightlife Agenda Pick of the Week
Just released on DVD this week, the documentary "Africa Unite" adds a new dimension to the existing body of work that aims to capture Bob Marley's musical and cultural legacy. This film records Bob's musical brood and Rita Marley as they celebrate Bob's 60th birthday in Ethiopia. It's part concert film, part Marley family scrapbook and a good amount of heartwarming pan-Africanism. Bob would surely smile approvingly upon the Ethiopian youngsters in the film singing along to "Get Up, Stand Up." If you haven't copped the DVD yet, you can get your first experience of the film Saturday at Zanzibar. The Catch A Fire celebration starts with a screening of the film followed by performances by the reggae bands S.T.O.R.M., Inspiration and Proverbs.

This is just one of the events featured in this week's Nightlife Agenda column, along with Valentine's Day events, a Bollywood dance party, a poker party for charity, an underground art and music festival and a club that's pairing local DJs and free beer.
