Black Pumas

Aug. 26
7 p.m.
Rock, Singer-Songwriter, Soul

Every now and then a voice comes along that interrupts your routine with its resonance. Eric Burton is one of those voices, reminiscent of old souls ranging from Al Green back to Jackie Wilson to Sam Cooke in its amiable fluidity. Burton’s band, the Black Pumas, is produced by Grupo Fantasma honcho Adrian Quesada and billed as psychedelic soul. But make no mistake: Burton is the epicenter, and it’ll definitely be worth catching this phase of his promising career. With Lady Midnight and Proper-T.
