BLACK JOE LEWIS AND THE HONEYBEARS
9 p.m., Revolution. $8 adv., $10 d.o.s.

Austin's Black Joe Lewis and the Honey Bears have a healthy sense of the past. The blues/soul act features a three-piece horn section, and the band's mixture of soul beats and horns with blues riffs often recalls Stax greats like Albert King. As a vocalist, too, Lewis' soul bark has a visceral strength that brings to mind the likes of Wilson Pickett and James Brown. Long an Austin standout, the band's starting to crossover nationally — it's been out on tour with Spoon and recently released an eponymous debut EP on Lost Highway. This show follows a rousing performance at Sticky Fingerz last October. Expect to see this band at the bigger Revolution from here on out. Get a taste of the group's garage-soul (“Gunpowder”) and slow-burn blues (“Bitch, I Love You”) on losthighwayrecords.com.
