When: Fri., July 8, 9 p.m. 2016
Go ahead and pop Sonny Knight and the Lakers Do It Live on the ol’ hi-fi. Pretty gnarly, right? The recently released album was recorded at a club in the acclaimed soul band’s native Minneapolis. And it accomplishes a rare feat for a live record: brilliantly capturing the band’s vintage grooves and Knight’s Sam Cooke-esque vocals in a way that’s almost as thrilling as listening in person. Almost. Hear Sonny Knight and the Lakers do it live this Friday, July 8, at Nectar’s in Burlington with smalltalker, featuring members of local neosoul outfit Smooth Antics.
