This visit, he’ll have copies of his new album, “The Man Who Killed Love.” The show starts at 9 p.m. at 107 Commerce St. Admission is $8. Read more about Hoge in Jim Harris’ column.
There’s a perfect place where Motown funk and Mississippi blues meet and Duwayne Burnside stands directly in the middle. He has the grill and the bloodline and the soul; see him Saturday, May 20. Opening act at 9 p.m. is Fundamental Elements, from St. Louis. Admission is $7. Burnside also has a new album, The New Mint.”
