Wednesday To-Do: Lalah Hathaway

LALAH HATHAWAY
7 p.m. Cajun's Wharf. $25-$50.

We'll just get this out of the way at the outset: Lalah Hathaway is the daughter of the legendary soul singer Donny Hathaway. But this isn't yet another case of the child of a renowned musician trading on her father's name.

Lalah Hathaway is a trained singer and pianist (Berklee School of Music) whose 20-plus year career has included several critically lauded albums. She's a versatile artist with a smoky, sultry singing voice that's unmistakably hers. Hathaway's latest disc, "Where it all Begins," mixes propulsive, synth-heavy pop-R&B with more classically styled soul numbers, smoldering ballads and dance-floor burners.

You'd better believe this show is a good bet for date night.

    You've got to figure that a band from frozen-ass Winnipeg is just gonna be way gnarlier and tougher than a band from some sun-kissed tropical clime where people wear tank tops and flip-flops year-round.
