Pearl Charles

w/ Psychotic Reaction (Doors at 8pm, free, 21+)

Pearl Charles’ newest release, Sleepless Dreamer, finds her soulful, often sultry voice gliding through songs tinged with cosmic Americana, a little disco, some classic rock & roll, and a whole lot of that smooth AM gold. Passion, psychedelics and heartbreak inform the highs and lows she rides through the album. Catch her performing songs from the album at Club Congress with support from Psychotic Reaction, a psychedelic punk band heavily rooted in blues, 60’s garage rock and psychedelia, 77 punk, surf rock, proto-punk/metal.

El Tambó Presents Phoenix Afrobeat Orchestra

w/ Santa Pachita and Sonido El Tambó (8pm, $10, 21+)

Music was invented/discovered. About 60000 years passed and these Nigerian geniuses Fela and Tony came to LA and fell in love with Black American Music, so they fused it with High Life and Yoruba rhythms to create Afrobeat. The better part of 50 years later, a bunch of Phoenicians began playing Afrobeat. A little after that, you started listening. Then you started dancing. What happens next? Come on down and let local favorites El Tambó and Santa Pachita help you decide.
