Anita Baker

Fri., Nov. 16, 8 p.m. and Sat., Nov. 17, 8 p.m.

Singer songwriter Anita Baker was born in Toledo and grew up in Detroit. She began her career singing in nightclubs when she was only 16 years old. Baker found herself in a group called Chapter 8, which toured before securing their record deal. Ultimately the group was dropped when Arista bought the group's former label as they felt that the group had very little potential with Baker as the lead singer. She worked odd jobs until she was convinced to embark on a solo career. That solo career helped to shape the sound of quiet storm R&B in the '80s and includes seven platinum albums including The Songstress, Rapture and Giving You the Best That I Got. Baker has been nominated for 18 Grammy awards and has eight wins in addition to various other awards. Baker has continued to perform over the years, but as recently as January of last year had announced her retirement from recording. She's embarking on a farewell tour set to make a stop in Cleveland for two nights at the State Theatre. (Emanuel Wallace) $59.50-$199.50

Little Steven & the Disciples of Soul

Fri., Nov. 16

Last year, Little Steven not only re-launched his long dormant solo career with Soulfire, but he also brought a gargantuan 15-piece band out onto the road to replicate what he had done in the studio for the album, a wonderfully retro trip through the back pages of his past work. The project grew out of something which was supposed to be a one-off gig in London. Instead, Van Zandt, in the process of rehearsing the retrospective setlist of material, heard something that “sounded like an album right away” and took advantage of the momentum and went straight into the studio to capture the album that he was hearing in his head. Expect to hear songs from it at tonight's gig. (Matt Wardlaw)
