And if you’re in NYC, don’t miss Aloe Blacc tomorrow night with The Grand Scheme at Le Poisson Rouge.
Giant Step and (Le) Poisson Rouge are proud to present Aloe Blacc & The Grand Scheme with special guests Maya Jupiter, The Stepkids, and DJ $mall ¢hange on Thursday, November 18th, at (Le) Poisson Rouge. If you were there to catch Mr. Blacc at our Summerstage performance this past Summer, then you should already know this is not a show to miss. If an Aloe performance is new to you, then check out this video of him performing “Loving you is killing me” live in studio. There will be horns, there will be bass, there will be soul.
Stones Throw artist Aloe Blacc has been working up to today’s release of Good Things with interviews, performances and viral covers (check out our Exclusive Giant Step video interview, coming soon!) After perfecting his emcee skills with producer Exile in their group Emanon and a solo debut record, Shine Through, Aloe Blacc emerged from relative obscurity this year when HBO chose his “I Need A Dollar” as the theme song for How To Make It In America. (“I Need A Dollar” is MP3 of the Day on Amazon) With production by the Truth & Soul crew, Good Things is now available and it’s the best soul album to come out this year.
