Aloe Blacc

Simply put, Aloe Blacc's Good Things is a damn near perfect album. Last year's breakthrough recording for the soulful Cali crooner—who is also an integral part of the afternoon sangria-and-sunshine party the Do-Over—topped many a critic's year-end list, and established lead single "I Need a Dollar" as the omnipresent anthem for the hand-to-mouth underclass. In fact, the entirety of Good Things resonates like a re-imagined What's Going On?, delicately capturing the worrisome reality of youth in modern-day America. Along with Raphael Saadiq, Blacc is at the forefront of the modern soul renaissance, and his unrestricted, medley-heavy live sets only seem to confirm this. Missing this show would be an outright crime. EZRA ACE CARAEFF
