JC Brooks & the Uptown Sound

When: Tue., May 15, 9 p.m. 2012

In the battle of nostalgia acts, you have to hand it to the soul cats. Not only is the sound fresher, but Brooks & Co. are learning to better synthesize their varied inspirations. This combo's founder, Billy Bungeroth, sought something more adventurous than his noisy post-punk band and alighted on fellow erstwhile actor JC Brooks, who possesses the mesmerizing magnetism required of a great soul singer. His band blends ass-activating grooves and garage-tinged rock crunch; last year's Want More brings the two into better balance and focus. —Chris Parker

Price: $10-12
