Adrian Younge has been tearing it up as of late. Between the Black Dynamite Orchestra, the Soundtrack to Venice Dawn, and various other projects, he has made quite a name for himself in the music world. What else can we say about Lo Down Loretta Brown aka Erykha Badu? The artist/ producer/ actress has almost single handedly kept the Soul genre alive and fresh since Baduizm, constantly changing her game up while delivering the goods. Whether it be Soul, Jazz, Hip Hop or whatever else she wants to touch, Badu has been consistently gigging and collaborating with game changers like Common, The Roots, Zap Mama, Guru, and Roy Hargrove to name a few, add Adrian Younge to that list. This special DJ set from Badu is another in the ongoing showcase series by Wax Poetics that pairs DJ’s with Wax Poetics artists. Last month featured Afrika Bambaataa and Chico Mann. The show is free and starts at 11PM, so get there early.
As Badu adds another chapter to her book: DJing, the multi-instrumentalist/ DJ/ producer Adrian Younge will be doing his thing as well, so this pairing looks to be a really good show. This event is FREE, and you can’t beat it on a Thursday night. Here are the details:
