Soul'd out 

SOUL'D OUT

10 p.m., Juanita's. $10 adv./$15 d.o.s.

Local promotional company Upscale Underground picks up in 2008 what it began late last year: urbane, soul-oriented line-ups of ahead-of-the-curve local and national artists. Dwele, a Grammy-nominated crooner who appears on Kanye West's latest single, “Flashing Lights,” hosts Friday's “Soul'd Out” concert. He's likely to perform a song or two, but three local groups will get more stage time. A new four-piece R&B act, Smooth September, features three vocalists: Desmond and Maya Ellington and Delya Chandler. Rodney Block is surely Little Rock's most accomplished brass man. The trumpeter (multi-instrumentalist, really) leads his group the Real Music Lovers in a kind of jazz that embraces hip-hop, bebop, funk, soul and gospel. One Night Stand needs to change its name. The live hip-hop band came together on a whim to support local rapper Epiphany early last year, and they've stuck around for more than a dozen gigs, steadily emerging as one of our most dynamic local live acts. The concert is open to ages 18 and up.
