Lee Fields & the Expressions serve up the funk

Posted By on Thu, Nov 14, 2013 at 3:28 PM

Lee Fields & the Expressions bring the old-school funky flavor to the Earl tonight (Thurs., Nov. 14). Fields' career stretches beyond an astonishing forty years, settling in with his most recently released album, 2012's Faithful Man (Truth & Soul).

Fields' presence on his records intrinsically mirrors the stylings of James Brown, and the Expressions' performance tells as much of a story as Fields' lyrics. His tales of highs, lows, love, and loss pour out of sound systems like the sweat dripping down from Fields' forehead onto his shiny leather jacket. And no matter how old you are, it's hard not to attach yourself to the band's retro-groove instrumentals.

Catch Lee Fields and the Expressions and Russell Gunn & Elektrik Butterfly tonight (Thurs., Nov. 14) at the Earl. $17. 8:30 p.m. 488 Flat Shoals Ave. 404-522-3950.
