Music Around Town, Seasonal Special Happenings

Robert Randolph and the Family Band

When: Fri., Nov. 7, 8:30 p.m. 2014

Robert Randolph and the Family Band’s seminal album Colorblind should never be far from your car’s trusted CD player (or Spotify playlist or whatever). From the initial wah of “Ain’t Nothing Wrong With That,” the whole thing is a surefire, slam-dance hit. (“Diane”! “Jesus is Just Alright”! Hell, Eric Clapton makes an appearance on that one.) To this day, as evidenced by 2013’s Lickety Split, still the band’s most recent album, Robert and Co. continue to pump out the slide-infused excitement they’ve always been known for. Randolph is a force to be heard - to be witnessed. He’s brought the sacred steel tradition into the mainstream, where it’s flourished alongside the blues, folk and jam crowds. As you can probably guess, the band simply shines on the stage. Tonight’s show will be infused with the sort of impressively positive energy you find only in moments of pure bliss. And seriously, all that stuff about Colorblind up there is the unvarnished truth. (Sandy)

Price: $30-$75
