JC Brooks & the Uptown Sound/Bassel & the Supernaturals/The Got It Got It Need It 

When: Sat., Feb. 13, 9 p.m. 2016
Price: $15
For about a decade now, JC Brooks and the Uptown Sound have been tossing edgy funk and soul music into all corners of the country’s many music scenes. Gaining cred on the national festival circuit, the band picked up a nice rep for its genre-blending: Brooks’ soulful stature works in juxtaposition with the band’s more distorted chord progressions and riffs. We’re still spinning 2013’s Howl, which will give you a nice idea of the sort of musical experience these guys offer. In sum, the band has described itself as “Otis Redding fronting The Stooges.” We like that. Oh, and while we’re at it, let’s also point out Brooks’ badass cover of Wilco’s “I Am Trying to Break Your Heart.” Really good stuff. (Sandy)
