Who: Blues-rock, soul and African-folk artiste extraordinaire Kalu James. A lot of heart and soul in this songwriter’s vision. “I am a person. Not a personality.”
What: A lovely set of performances called Sunset Sessions V. 8
When: Tonight at 8 p.m.
Where: The mighty Empire Control Room, 606 E. 7th St.
Why: Something to enjoy as the day winds down to evening. True, it’s been a bit rainy, but no amount of rain will wash away this lovely performance. Songwriter Mariclaire Gamble opens the show. Recommended.
