Local music insiders may know of 800 East as one of the city’s most heavily trafficked recording studios, but come this Saturday, October 27 — thanks to vocalist Julie Dexter and bassist/bandleader Khari Simmons — the space will transform into a concert venue for a night.
The concert — dubbed “Julie Dexter & Khari Simmons Unplugged” — is set to be a rare, intimate evening of live music performed by two of Atlanta’s most prolific soul citizens.
And along with the music (and refreshments), Simmons (who recently garnered a Best Soul Album award from Creative Loafing) and Dexter will conduct a post-show Q&A session, fielding questions from the audience.
“This show is going to be ... myself and Khari Simmons performing some of our favorite songs, and we will be talking about the inspiration behind the music,” Dexter adds.
Seating for the show is extremely limited, so you may want to get on it now.
$25. 7 p.m.-11 p.m. 800 East Recording Studio, 800 East Ave., NE. 800eastunplugged-efbevent.eventbrite.com.
