Friday, April 24, Latasha Lee and the Black Ties take the stage at Stubbs indoors with local support from the Villettes.
Latasha Lee is young yet so full of soul.
Inspired by the Aretha Franklin, Whitney Houston, Etta James, and the Motown sound, Latasha's music pays tribute to her icons. Backed by the brassy Black Ties, it’s soulful music that will teach you about the Gulf Coast blues and take you back. She’s certainly up there with Amy Winehouse, Adele, and other powerful voices of our generation.
Hailing from Corpus Christi, Latasha Lee knows what it means to be Texas bred. Her Southern take on retro R&B has attracted an international growing buzz and is not a force to be reckoned with.
Since 2013, Latasha Lee and the Black Ties have blown away every performance, including a spot at Austin City Limits Music Fest. Songs like “Get Away” and “Gotta Be A Way” show the early doo-wop sound that stirs within Latasha. It’s genuine, heartfelt, and gutsy stuff you don’t want to miss out on.
Opening for the evening is local group the Villettes. This folksy quartet is made up of women who can jam, and in the past year they’ve been playing as much as they can all over Austin, including Cheer Up Charlie’s, Hole in the Wall, the Mohawk, and Parish Underground. They’re currently recording an EP with local collective No Play Music that will release later this year.
Tickets are available for purchase at the door or online for $5. Doors open at 9:30 p.m. This is an all ages show.
