Tuesday, March 8
Mavis Staples and Nick Lowe

Perhaps the most brilliant musical idea any mind has ever thought up was to put a backbeat to The Staple Singers gospel songs. Not only did it plant one of the funkiest grooves behind some of the sweetest sounds, but it allowed for the hallmark principles of equality and respect to have a place in the often vapid realm of popular song. With British pub poet and songwriter of note Nick Lowe. $32.50-$60, 7:30pm, Tobin Center for the Performing Arts, 100 Auditorium Circle, (210) 223-8624
