What to Do Tonight: Andre Williams

by

A few years back, ’60s R&B singer Andre Williams would play Pat’s in the Flats and tear it up with whatever hot rock band was backing him. Since then, he’s played the Beachland (15711 Waterloo Rd., 216.383.1124, beachlandballroom.com), where he’s put on a couple of great shows. For tonight’s gig, Williams will be in the Tavern, where his in-your-face style should go over quite well. Backed by a band called the Party Stompers, Williams will probably perform faves like “Jail Bait,” “Bacon Fat” and “Shake a Feather” — songs that earned the dapper dresser the moniker “The Father of Rap.” The show starts at 8 p.m. with a book signing. (Williams recently published Sweets, a pulpy paperback novel.) The Hi-Risers open. Tickets: $10 advance, $12 day of show. — Jeff Niesel
