This looks like a killer show. You can't go wrong with this venue. Stunningly beautiful and the best acoustics around, from every vantage point. I'd be trying to get in to this if I was in town.

Wonder if Maceo will get together with Prince after? ::drool::

“Primally explosive funk.†(The Independent) The “pancontinental funk-soul supergroup†(The Boston Globe) celebrates James Brown’s revolutionary music in this innovative, rhythm fuelled tribute of Afro-funk. Discovering the points where African and American music strike sparks off each other, Pee Wee Ellis and a host of stars, including the legendary Maceo Parker on sax, and Cheikh Lô, pay tribute to James Brown’s lasting legacy while exploring the deep relationship between soul, funk, and modern African music.

“By its title alone, Still Black, Still Proud not only honours James Brown, but references a specific aspect and time period in his multifaceted body of work. It recalls the political, even revolutionary Brown, whose music was a virtual soundtrack to the breakthrough of black consciousness in American culture.†(The Boston Globe)
