Any project soul singer Aloe Blacc takes on, as he is continually showing, will be infused with the emotion and passion that gets both the guys and the gals tingly all over. His hit song, “I Need a Dollar,” was featured on HBO’s “How to Make It in America,” and sparked major attention. With a bouncing bass line, clean blues guitar riffs, and a sax and trumpet section from The Grand Scheme, Billie Jean’s intensely personal lyrics are brought out in an entirely new way in one of the best covers of the song we’ve heard. Look out for more Aloe Blacc videos in the near future, and if you’re in the New York area, don’t miss him at Giant Step’s Summerstage on July 17th on the Central Park main stage.
SummerStage (NYC) is here with the season and as usual, tons of great artists are lined up to play in the park. We’ve selected some choice options for you, because alas we cannot all be everywhere at once. After the jump, check out the full line-up along with some videos of our favorites.
Check out our pix from the best SummerStage ever! Thanks to everyone who came out – hope you had as much fun as we did.
The big day is so close: Q-Tip, Chester French, Little Dragon, DJ Benji B, Central Park and the sun! Or rain. Either way, the show is free so get yourself there by any means necessary!
