Sharon Jones label mate Charles Bradley will take the stage at the Great American Music Hall this Friday. Like Jones, Bradley is an artist who’s been ignored most of his career–but fortunately–not all. Riding the success of his latest album, No Time For Dreaming, Bradley is final getting the attention his skills deserve. Backed by the Menahan Street Band, expect the heat from this  performance to put the bounce in your perms and the shuffle in your step.

The Menahan Street Band, who will open the night, shouldn’t be missed. Like El Michels Affair, Menahan Street Bands’ latest album, The Crossing, mixes classic soul with hip hop rhythms through live instrumentation–making any emcee want a piece of the action.

    My favorite track by Charles Bradley is “The World (Is Going Up in Flames)” – he just puts his whole soul into the song. Simply beautiful.
