Nightlife Highlights

February 2. Brooklyn's supremely funky Afrobeat/electronica collective Superhuman Happiness, which is set to turn MassMOCA into a throbbing, sweaty dance club this month, is led by band founder Stuart Bogie. The saxophonist is no stranger to the style, being a veteran member of Antibalas, which had a rabid following long before it became the house band for Broadway's hit musical "Fela!", and having also worked with Paul Simon, the Roots, Public Enemy, Iron and Wine, Wu Tang Clan, Passion Pit, Bat for Lashes, and more. Bogie and band's latest recording is the 2011 EP Physical. (Chicha Libre brings psychedelic cumbias February 9; Neutral Milk Hotel's Jeff Mangum visits February 16.) 8pm. $12, $16 ($10 students). North Adams, Massachusetts.
