Getting Ready for Saturday Night

We're having a party tonight (Saturday) to celebrate Fall. It's going to have yard games, Wii bowling, a bonfire, chili with tequila-soaked steak, etc. Plus, we're gonna have music. But choosing good music can be difficult. Especially when it's going to be a mixed crowd (friends, family, co-workers, etc.). So we looked at our collection and found Ozomatli. Instantly, we knew we had a winner. Ozomatili combines jazz, blues, big band, latina/o, and hip-hop into unique party music. It has something for everyone. But it gets better. When we looked at the lyrics of their music, we discovered they are about having fun and social change. We looked no further. Ozomatli was our music of choice. They provide a postmodern blend of musical genres while they party for justice. It just doesn't get better than that. Jesus himself must have listened to music like this when he turned water into wine. Seriously, how can you go wrong with lyrics like these:

Uhh, imagine
Waking up, solidarity is evident
Harmony moves, time is irrelevant
People, the places, the message basic
From raised fists to sit-ins, resist the change
Peep the scenario, to the future bro
2020 and some number a year ago
People rose up, governments froze up
Worldwide block party, everybody shows up
Up on roof tops, ghettos and hot spots
People celebratin' no more souls rot
No more bloodshed over false deficit
Even hip-hop gets a face-lift
The latest fashion, stock market's crashin'
It's Saturday, time to get the party crackin'
And if the time and the day is right
The revolution will begin this Saturday night
Dip, dive, socialize
Get ready for the Saturday night
