The Screamin’ Eagle of Soul has landed in San Francisco. Charles Bradley‘s soul Cinderella story has been told by the man himself in countless interviews and last year’s Soul of America documentary.
His jovial gratitude tinges every track of sophomore LP Victim of Love and now he’s hitting the road to bring you even more. It’s one thing to slow dance to “How Long” in the comfort of your own home or work out to “Where Do We Go From Here” but catching the man live is what truly puts Bradley’s discography over the edge.
Backed by his Extraordinaires, the incredibly dapper Menahan Street Band, Bradley is set to blow the roof off the Great American Music Hall two nights in a row, this Wednesday and Thursday.
Singer Aaradhna also graces both evenings with a mix of handclap-happy ’60s cheer and just enough soul to bridge the gap between opener and headliner. Tickets are just $26 each night for general admission and can be purchased here and here.
