Who: There is no mistaking this groove. Welcome to the super soul-funk-jazz fabulousness that is Akina Adderley. She brings the fiery soul grooves as Akina Adderley & The Vintage Playboys, and creates jazz/world/funk infusions with improvisational masters Nori. Every now and then, you’ll see her providing backing vocals for Nakia. This is one busy woman, and an outstanding performer!
What: This time, you have the opportunity to hear some mad soul-infused jazz grooves with Akina Adderley & The Upper East Side.
When & where: It’s all goin’ down tonight, 10 p.m., at Stay Gold, 1910 E. Cesar Chavez. Let’s hear it for the lion.
Why: Stay Gold provides the perfect setting for this more intimate gig, and no doubt Adderley will blow you away with a great show. She’ll be incredibly busy during SXSW, so treat yourself and see her now. Highly recommended.
