Monday, January 14, 2013


Booker T. Jones Booker T. Jones Booker T. Jones Booker T. Jones Booker T. Jones

A solo Booker T. tour: As the namesake of Booker T. and the M.G.'s, Booker T. Jones is amongst one of the most meaningful and influential acts to ever come out of the Stax Records family. These days, the Memphis soul man may be solo, but his funky piano playing remains across 2009's Grammy Award winning comeback CD "Potato Hole" and 2011's collaborations collection "The Road From Memphis" (featuring vocalists as diverse as Lou Reed, Sharon Jones, plus members of My Morning Jacket and The National).

Maniacs' first new tunes in 14 years: On the heels of its 30th anniversary, 10,000 Maniacs gear up for the brand new studio release "Music From The Motion Picture." The project marks its first full-length of entirely new material in 14 years, which coupled with a celebrated past that includes an extraordinary cover of Patti Smith's "Because The Night," promises an evening of sophisticated jangle pop. Friday, January 18 at City Winery: www.citywinery.com/chicago.
Brandy Brandy Brandy Brandy Brandy

Brandy is back: With over 30 million album sales to date, Brandy isn't just one of the more visible names in R&B, but she's consistently crossed over to the pop charts with some of the catchiest hits from the '90s and 2000s. Following a four year absence, the soul siren returns in support of "Two Eleven," which was named after both the singer's own birthday and the passing date of her long time hero Whitney Houston. Saturday, January 19 at The Venue at Horseshoe Casino: www.thevenuechicago.com.
