Lollapalooza Festival in Chicago

Lollapalooza Festival in Chicago

In 1991, Jane’s Addiction decided to call it quits and went out with a bang by organizing their own touring festival.

Charles Bradley Live at the Paradise

Charles Bradley Live at the Paradise

Charles Bradley is a man of soul in more ways than one. Besides having spent decades as a James Brown impersonator–one of the founding fathers of funk–Charles has opened a new chapter in his life, this time using his own name.

Newport Folk Festival: Charles Bradley

Newport Folk Festival: Charles Bradley

If there’s anything I love about funk and soul, it’s when the bass and vocals collide. If you stopped by the Fort stage this Sunday to see Charles Bradley, then that’s exactly what you got. His group, The Extraordinaires, started things off with a jamming track the featured all of their instruments: trumpet, saxophone, drums, [...]
