The Bajan blood boiling in Krosfyah, a soca band formed in 1989, has made it a favorite for calypso lovers around the world. Krosfyah invites listeners on a musical cruise in its latest recording, Hot Zone, which spices sweaty rhythms with an even hotter double entendre and a masterful blend of soca and reggae. Lead singer Edwin Yearwood informs the contingent living in the cold that it’s OK to be “too sexy for the winter,” but not to be too sexy for soca, or to refrain from dancing. Known for its explosive high-energy performances, in concert the group of nine men attacks bare-chested melodies and “wuks up” a saucy indulgence for the audience, including songs like “Calor,” “Woody Wood Pecker,” and “No Behaviour.” “Free up yuh self” with Krosfyah and openers Image Band and Bobby’s Music Machine. At midnight at the Crossroads, 4103 Baltimore Ave., Bladensburg. $20. (301) 927-1056. (AM)
