Soul Kitchen has grown into a venue where music fans can experience arena/festival-level bands in a relatively small environment. Last week, Soul Kitchen debuted Spoon on its stage, and now this local music hall is preparing for Ben Harper & the Innocent Criminals’ Azalea City debut.
Harper will be performing cuts from his catalog, including his latest album, “Call It What It Is.” This multi-instrumentalist and his band glide freely through a number of genres and even mix a few. From progressive blues to rock ‘n’ roll, Harper’s musical formula continues to be fresh and impressive.
While the group sounds great in the studio, their recordings can’t compare to a live interpretation. From fiery lap-steel slides to adrenalized extended jams, Harper’s live show will provide a different context for newcomers.
