Dont Miss the Next Big Soul Act at SPACE and More Shows Coming Up This Month!
Snow! Don’t let a little powder interfere with your plans this week: Tonight, actress and singer-songwriter Alicia Witt comes to SPACE. Our resident blues guru, Dave Specter, takes the stage on Wednesday for the next exploration in his “Adventures in Guitar” series, this time featuring guitarist-keyboardist Brother John Kattke. On Thursday, Chicago pop band The Aluminum Group plays the club with an opening set by writer and performance artist Cheryl Trykv.
Friday’s Alejandro Escovedo duo show with Susan Voelz is sold out. But if you don’t want to miss the alt-country legend, there are still tickets available for Escovedo’s show in our sister room, The Promontory, in Hyde Park, on Saturday night. At 10 p.m. on Friday for our late show, New York singer-songwriter Ari Hest returns to SPACE. Saturday brings folk singer-songwriter Cheryl Wheeler to the club, as well as the second installment of our late-night deep soul party, Heart & Soul , with DJs Dusty Grooves and Aret Sakalian. Sunday night brings three young standouts from the Cambridge, Mass., folk scene: Darlingside, Heather Maloney and Tall Heights.
And we’re closing out March with a couple emerging artists that you won’t want to miss. On Monday, March 30, New Orleans singer-songwriter Kristin Diable comes to the club. Her debut album has been praised by NPR, Billboard, Paste and more. On the bill with Kristin is an artist we think could be the next big thing in soul music: Anderson East. Check out Anderson’s video (above) of a forgotten soul classic, recorded live at FAME Studios in Muscle Shoals, Ala., via Rolling Stone. And on March 31, we have a bit more musical history for ya with The Von Trapps, the great-grandchildren of Georg von Trapp, whose family was the basis for the musical The Sound of Music.
