Coming Up: The Wailers, Christian Scott, Victor Wooten, The Sadies, Wanda Jackson, Hayes Carll, Trevor Hall, & More
Tickets are moving fast for our September concerts. Among the blockbuster shows coming to the club this fall are two nights with virtuoso bassist-composer Victor Wooten on Sept. 5 and 6. Reggae legends The Wailers (featuring original Wailer, Aston “Family Man” Barrett) will bring their excellent grooves to the club on Sept. 9. Slideman Sonny Landreth is back with his Louisiana blues on Sept. 10. And the Queen of Rock, Wanda Jackson, is here on Sept. 25.
This Weekend: We’re down to single-digit tickets for Keller Williams on Friday night. Don’t delay if you want to catch the acoustic master! Chicago’s own Bloodshot Records will be well-represented on Saturday night, when Robbie Fulks and special guest Redd Volkaert play the early show; and New Orleans rising star Luke Winslow-King holds it down (with his full band!) for the late show. Bettye LaVette has been putting on a stunning live show for over 50 years. She’ll be at SPACE this Sunday. You won’t want to miss the soul legend in this intimate setting.
SPACE News: KALA, the new album from Trevor Hall, is out tomorrow, Aug. 21. Listen to the single “Back to You” here and catch Trevor at the club on Oct. 23. Speaking of Bloodshot, Jon Langford’s new “glam-voodoo space rock” project, Bad Luck Jonathan, will be opening for The Sadies on Aug. 27! Texas songwriter Hayes Carll recently told The Boston Globe that he plans to “revisit his roots as a songwriting craftsman” on his next album, which he will begin work on soon with producer Joe Henry. Catch Hayes at the club on Oct. 8.
Song of the Week: “New New Orleans (King Adjuah Stomp)” by Christian Scott. New Orleans native Scott connects the past and present of jazz with his “Stretch Septet,” performing at SPACE on Sept. 8. Fans of HBO’s Treme may know Scott from his on-screen cameos. In fact, as NPR notes: “His life story partially inspired the character Delmond Lambreaux, a jazz trumpeter who has left New Orleans to pursue a career in New York.”
