The Austin Music Minute cannot brag enough about the talent of Latasha Lee & The Black Ties. This is easily one of the top groups you get swept away by, when the music grooves so hard, and a phenomenal singer like Lee knocks you over with so much soul and energy that you can’t help but get up on your feet to dance. No exaggeration. Aretha would be damn proud.
Treat yourself to a grand performance tonight by Latasha Lee & The Black Ties at Empire Control Room, 606 E. 7th St. As if you needed more enticement, dynamic hip-hop duo Riders Against the Storm is also on the bill, another must-see that’s heavy on the massive grooves. Funk/soul outfit The Finest Kind opens the show. Get there at 9 p.m. It’ll do you right. So recommended.
