Rock & Pop, Seasonal Special Happenings

G. Love & Special Sauce

When: Fri., Feb. 7, 9 p.m. 2014

Not many of the alt-rock and hip-hop acts that MTV made famous in the '90s are still kicking. G. Love & Special Sauce is the exception. Twenty years ago, the singer-guitarist G. Love and his two-piece band released their self-titled debut and had an instant hit with the woozy blues-meets-hip-hop number "Cold Beverage." In the two decades since that album's release, Love and crew have consistently toured and recorded; they received a good second wind in 2003 when Love and singer-songwriter Jack Johnson collaborated on the Johnson tune "Rodeo Clowns." Love's forthcoming album, Sugar, which will be released on April 22, reunites Love with upright bassist James "Jimi Jazz" Prescott and drummer Jeffrey "The Houseman" Clemens for the first time in eight years. The band will perform its first album, G. Love & Special Sauce, in its entirety during the first set of tonight's show. (Jeff Niesel)
