Black Joe Lewis and the Honeybears w/The Preservation 

When: Fri., April 27, 9 p.m. 2012
Price: $14-$16
In a seemingly effortless sequence of events, an Austin-bred pawnshop worker picked up a guitar, decided to give it a try — and within a few years he was opening for Spoon. Three albums later, the charismatic Black Joe Lewis has honed his chops, and he ranges from a soothing and intimate vocalist to the lo-fi psycho-babbling nephew of James Brown. With a dense blend of horns, the Honeybears construct a Texas twist on their own signature style of soul rock. Although they’ve matured musically over the past couple years, the group has remained lovably irreverent — and they give a spectacle of a live show. Whether every member is shouting along to “Booty City,” or Black Joe is recounting his breakup narrative in “Get Yo Shit,” the group’s blend of humor and hard-hitting blues makes for a lighthearted, memorable experience.
