LOCAL SPINS- The Big List Concert Guide (Oct. 7-12)

The buzz over ArtPrize’s finale week couldn’t overshadow stellar shows by Laura Rain & The Caesars, OK Go, Brothers Osborne and plenty more, captured in images at Local Spins.Retro modern soul, indeed. I’ve been listening to Laura Rain & The Caesars’ latest album “Closer" and I must say I might not hear a more explosive female voice this year. The Detroit blues and soul singer also happens to front a band that rocks the funk out of the joint, so the group’s Tip Top debut is likely to rattle the walls while filling the dance floor with a vintage R&B vibe. It’s not hype when they describe themselves as a “powerhouse soul" quartet.
