Leon Bridges, Lianne La Havas

When: Sun., Sept. 11, 7:30 p.m. 2016

Texas singer-songwriter Leon Bridges seemingly came out of nowhere to become one of the key figures in the most recent revival of Southern soul music. Smoother than St. Paul & the Broken Bones and less rocking than the Alabama Shakes, Bridges largely plays it straight with simple arrangements peppered by punchy horns and graced with touches of vintage doo-wop and gospel, putting the spotlight on his powerful pipes, which recall Sam Cooke and Otis Redding. Fellow Grammy nominee Lianne La Havas opens. —Spencer Griffith

Price: $35-$137
