The AMM stands by its use of the word “explosive” today. Seriously, this one’s going to be a knockout at Central Machine Works, 4824 E. Cesar Chavez.

The mighty Brownout, featuring members of Grammy Award-winning Grupo Fantasma (and a band proven to do some of the most mind-blowingly badass cross-pollenated covers of tracks by Public Enemy and Black Sabbath) headlines a CMW show tomorrow night, Thursday Oct. 7, with special guests The Nightowls and The Capitol. This is your trip through all manner of funk, soul, R&B, hip-hop and beyond.

The music kicks off at 7 p.m., and please remember to bring your mask.
