Antibalas at Publishers Group West Party

For over 20 years, book distributor Publishers Group West has hosted a party with hot music on the Sat. night of Book Expo America. Last night it was afrobeat band Antibalas from Brooklyn, which Wikipedia says: “…incorporates elements of jazz, funk, dub, improvised music, and traditional drumming from Cuba and West Africa.” Everyone stayed right up until the last song, dancing and happy.

About Lloyd Kahn

Lloyd Kahn started building his own home in the early '60s and went on to publish books showing homeowners how they could build their own homes with their own hands. He got his start in publishing by working as the shelter editor of the Whole Earth Catalog with Stewart Brand in the late '60s. He has since authored six highly-graphic books on homemade building, all of which are interrelated. The books, "The Shelter Library Of Building Books," include Shelter, Shelter II (1978), Home Work (2004), Builders of the Pacific Coast (2008), Tiny Homes (2012), and Tiny Homes on the Move (2014). Lloyd operates from Northern California studio built of recycled lumber, set in the midst of a vegetable garden, and hooked into the world via five Mac computers.
