What do the sounds of Afro-Brazil, Latin, jazz-funk, soul, nu-Jazz, electronica and house have in common? Those are just a smattering of the musical influences you'll hear this Saturday when Aquabooty presents After Dark at the Oasis at the Raleigh Hotel. Part of the 2008 JVC Jazz Festival, this events packs a performance by trumpet virtuoso Raul Midon, the Yoruba Soul Orchestra and German turntable titan DJ Rainer Truby. Bonus: It all takes place under the stars at the hotel's famed oceanside backyard. May 17, 9PM, $25 in advance, $35 at door.
