Dudes, it’s cold outside. I totally get that you are pretty comfortable in your apartment under that electric blanket of yours, but tonight the enigmatic ladies from old-school soul outfit The Sweet Divines are warming things up with their first holiday spectacular at Lincoln Center. They’ve invited special guests Eli “Paperboy” Reed and Maxine Brown along for the night of James Brown-inspired booty shakin’, and even had the kindness to make it free so you’ll come too.
The four Divines have cemented a reputation among soul music aficionados for their old-school look, feel and performances. Reed, a 26-year old who has toured with Say Anything to Janelle Monae, has been praised world-wide for channeling old sounds and making them his own. Brown is a veteran soul singer and icon thanks to an impressive number of hits in the 60s. Basically, you’re gonna need your dancing shoes.
