From the Hum: Black Joe Lewis, tonight!

Posted By on Mon, Dec 2, 2013 at 9:38 AM


Whoa, it's December! And tonight Black Joe Lewis returns to Humboldt Brews. Hot damn.

The band's latest album, Electric Slave (stream it here) was produced in large part by Grammy award winner Stuart Sikes (White Stripes, Cat Power, Modest Mouse) and recorded at Church House Studios in Austin. Three of the new tracks were recorded and produced by John Congleton (Explosions in the Sky, St. Vincent, Okkervil River) at Elmwood Studios in Dallas.

Black Joe Lewis brings it, folks. What is it? A smokin' sexy vibe, of course, like all the best live music, and a deep understanding of the place where Southern soul meets Midwestern blues and vagabond punk — given that Lewis calls Austin home, it's no surprise. What's more unlikely is the way he channels both the rhythm of James Brown and the rawness of Iggy Pop in a one-two punch that'll knock you silly. Be prepared to get down.

Radkey
and Think No Think kick things off around 9 p.m., tickets are $15 and you'll want to get them now. More show details here.
