Joseph Conrad's novel Heart of Darkness — besides giving birth to one of the most overused literary lines of all time ("The horror! The horror!"), one of the cheapest literary knockoffs of all time (Lord of the Flies), and an entire film crew's mental and physical collapse (Apocalypse Now) — appears to have inspired the name of one of Kansas City's vivacious live bands. Hearts of Darkness, also known as HOD, is an 18-piece tangle of Afrobeat mayhem, primal hip-hop and a moonwalk of funk. The band's performance at Davey's Uptown Ramblers Club — its first gig since rumbling the historic halls of the Mutual Musicians Foundation on Mardi Gras — features new members to complement new music from a forthcoming album. Come ready to sweat it all out like a hung-over Richard Simmons. Apocalypse not included.
