Black Joe Lewis

For pure, raw, soul-slathered blues, R&B, funk, and rock 'n' roll, Joe Lewis and his swaggering band set the contemporary gold standard even before they break into their first sweat of the evening. Howling and snarling like a cross of James Brown, Screamin' Jay Hawkins, and Johnny Rotten, the Austin, Texas-based Lewis spews warnings about life's demons and stings them with his electric guitar among a fusillade of horns. If anything, the new Electric Slave is even more raucous and immediate than previous records, sporting new layers of fuzzed-out psychedelia. Pickwick opens. 18+. (Photo by Keith Davis Young)
