ARTS Pick: St. Paul & The Broken Bones

St. Paul & The Broken Bones are the next stars on the soul revival circuit with recent appearances on late night talk shows and an NPR segment. St. Paul & The Broken Bones are the next stars on the soul revival circuit with recent appearances on late night talk shows and an NPR segment.

The unassuming members of St. Paul & The Broken Bones produce spine-tingling soul music that surpasses simple revival—this music sweats and stomps its way through a regeneration of the genre. Singer Paul Janeway possesses a set of pipes with the heart-wrenching timbre of Otis Redding combined with the wailing bad-assery of a writhing James Brown. Backed by musicians with the tenacity and energy of a gospel choir, the live show is nothing short of infectious.

Saturday 3/22. $10-12, 9pm. The Southern Cafe and Music Hall, 103 S. First St. 977-5590.
