Black Joe Lewis and the Honeybears were the unicorns of my SXSW experience. I vehemently sought after the Austin band, insistent upon catching at least one of the nine-odd shows they played, though every time I arrived at a venue, some red-faced individual would inform me that the Honeybears had "just finished" their set and so, I eventually decided that they did not exist. However, by the good graces of the Soul'd Out Festival—whom I trust to bill bands that are not mythical creatures—Black Joe Lewis will travel directly to me (and you! Well, Dante's). Their very recently released sophomore album Scandalous flawlessly fuses blues, garage soul, and funk with just enough fire and grit from Lewis himself, who interchangeably channels Lightnin' Hopkins and Bootsy Collins. Want to shake the cobwebs this week? No need to attend another vintage soul DJ gig; get yourself directly to this show. RAQUEL NASSER
