Review of Super Soul Party 2 in We Listen Hear

Review of Super Soul Party 2 in We Listen Hear

Many thanks to Luke Murphree for the glowing review of last week’s Red River Noise Presents: Super Soul Party 2 at Spider House Ballroom with Latasha Lee & the Black Ties, ROXY ROCA, The Shears, and KP and the Boom Boom. Here’s a taste:

If James Brown were white and from Alabama, he would be Taye Cannon. Midway through the set Cannon told the crowd “Life is about recreation not animation. Find your dream and make it happen.” Cannon wasn’t just singing the good gospel. He was preaching. As he slid across the stage shaking and jiving, you can’t help but observe he has found his dream and he’s sharing it with the audience.
