AFROFUNK MUSIC FESTIVAL

Here's something not much in the news: there's about one million people starving to death in an ongoing famine in Somalia. Soulful funker Sila Mutungi, formerly of the beloved Sila and the Afrofunk Experience, is doing something about it. He put together this charitable night — all proceeds go to the CARE organization — that also features Black Nature of the Sierra Leone Refugee All-Stars, "Mr. Afrobeat" DJ Jeremiah, tribal belly dancers, and more. Plus, of course, a room full of beautiful people.

Sat/22, 8 p.m., $15. Brick and Mortar, 1710 Mission, SF. www.brickandmortarmusic.com

 

FRITE NITE

Cosmic bass music, ahoy! The Frite Nite crew kicks off Halloween season with this deliciously devilish showcase of BWAAWAAWAA. Ever-awesome DJ Ana Sia's just released a compilation mix of Frite Nite peeps' work entitled Surreal Estate which unfortunately melted my Jambox remote PC speaker, but in a good way. She'll be joined by Salva, Eprom, Chrissy Murderbot, B. Bravo, and many more.

Sat/22, 9 p.m., $10 advance. Mezzanine, 444 Jessie, SF. www.mezzaninesf.com
