In an age where "vintage polaroid" is considered a look, Aloe Blacc's throwback style isn't much to write home about.
But its not Blacc's retro-cool appearance that makes him stand out -- its his stunning, soulful voice and desire to mobilize social change through his music that deserves the time of day.
Playing tonight at City Hall with Mile High Soul Club DJs Dogboy and Tyler "Danger" Jacobson, Blacc's voice, backed by his band, the Grand Scheme, will be a perfect fit for a crisp fall evening in the Mile High City.
Getting some much deserved attention early in the year after HBO picked Blacc's track "I Need A Dollar" as the theme song for How to Make it in America, the Orange County native is now touring in support of Good Things, his second full-length album released in September.
Channeling Marvin Gaye's activist presence while skimming Sam Cooke/Stevie Wonder/Curtis Mayfield's vocal sensibilities, Blacc manages to meld these influences together into a style all his own. This show is eighteen and up. Tickets are for $15. Doors open at 7 p.m. and show begins at 8 p.m.
