Friday To-Do: True Soul Revue

Posted By on Fri, Mar 4, 2011 at 5:54 AM

10 p.m., White Water Tavern.

It's been a crazy few months since True Soul Revue, the pride of Arkansas soul-funk, took the stage for a shaking October gig at White Water Tavern. Now Again Records, a specialty funk/soul/psych imprint label under Stones Throw's experimental hip-hop tent, is set to release a comprehensive two CD/DVD, four LP retrospective of highlights from Lee Anthony's celebrated label. The group has been the object of beat-digger fetishization since DJ Shadow gave the studio house band a shout out years ago. But now, with the upcoming anthology being prepared for release, a new audience of backpackers may end up adoring the seven-piece the way Arkansans do. Few acts in the area have such a fervent following. And even fewer, if any, can start a party like these guys. Bring a pair of groove boots in case your dancing shoes bust.

Take a look: True Soul Revue live at Cornerstone Pub
