The Brooklyn collective Antibalas recently played a live set for KCRW on one of Los Angeles' hottest summer days. The 11-piece band is one of the leading purveyors of Afrobeat music and didn't disappoint, bringing the heat throughout a seamless four-song jam, of which we present "Dirty Money" here. The group spends a lot of time on the road, and you can see plenty of evidence of that in this performance.
And now it's time for the regular feature we call In Your Ear. That's where we ask some of our guests to share their personal playlists with us. Gabriel Iglesias is one of the most watched comedians on YouTube. And if you haven't caught one of his acts there, perhaps you've seen him on Comedy Central or his project Standup Revolution.
He recently stopped by our studios in Culver City, California, as part of our summer series Make Me Laugh, where we visited with some of the countries most fun comedians.
