Beats for days with this one, and a wide variety at that. In all it'll be a whimsical combination of soul, funk, hip-hop and house, which is a recipe for success especially in a place like the Empty Bottle. Each will bring their own flavor to the table, and the earlier you get there the better.
Aloe Blacc has one of the purest voices in soul, a smokey tone that seems to find its way to the heart of anyone who listens. He's slowly crafted himself into an undercover superstar (if there ever is such a thing), and seems to make all the right moves when it comes to handling his image. His latest album Lift Your Spirit is exactly what the title implies, a chorus of songs that'll inspire you in every way possible. His set at the Vic will be in celebration of the album. Main Squeeze and Johnnyswim open.
Soul Summit returns with another night of raw funk and soul. This month's guest will be Grand Rapids Soul Club who seem to be working right in stride with the Soul Summit gang - birds of the same feather flock together. The night will be packed as always so early arrival is highly recommended.
