UPCOMING EVENTS: Ledisi, Jill Scott, Capital Hip Hop Soul Fest & More

Bouncers, I hope you were keeping an eye on the calendar while we were away. The past few weeks have been chock full of great events. In case you missed out, never fear. I'm back to make sure you stay woke. Here's what on tap for this week.

Sanging soul divas Ledisi and Lalah Hathaway take the stage in Philly this Friday for the Sounds of R&B series. And can you believe it's free?! Show starts at 7:30 at Great Plaza at Penns Landing.

The National Black Arts Festival continues in various locations throughout Atlanta until Sunday. Check out various events in dance, film, music, theatre, and visual arts. The music lineup includes a soulful jazz interpretation of Marvin Gaye hits and performances by Roy Ayers, Millie Jackson, Julie Dexter, and Vinx. Visit the festival website for details.

Friday in DC: Anthony David and N'Dambi will perform at The Black Cat. Tickets are $18 and can be purchased through Ticketmaster or at the box office.

Saturday in Detroit: I grew faint when I got wind of this show. Why oh why has DC been forsaken?! Philly?! Hello! Jill Scott and Bilal will perform at Chene Park as part of the Classic Soul Series. Tickets range from $25-$65 and are available at the box office or through Ticketmaster. Detroiters, I'm hating real hard right now. Y'all enjoy.

Saturday in DC: Hip Hop heads who may have found the ticket price for Rock The Bells a little too steep, be sure to check out the free Capital Hip Hop Soul Fest at Marvin Gaye Park. DJ Jahsonic will be on double duty hosting and spinning throughout the day. Hip hop and soul singers set to rock the mic include Rogiers, Afi Soul, Mello D & the Rados, Substantial, Dee Stone and Jua Howard. For more details visit the festival website.
