Mavis Staples tore the roof of the Dakota Club on Tuesday night. Man, can that tiny woman wail! She put on an amazing 90 minute show, during which she was warm, funny, and engaging. I left wishing I could make her my funky soul grandma.
If you are anywhere near any of her tour dates, by all means try to see her perform live. You'll be glad you did.
More for you cats later.
