Coming to the Roseland for two big shows this week, Austin's critically acclaimed Black Pumas will wow their audience with their electrifying guitar-driven stage presence, vintage soul-inspired sound, and Eric Burton’s tireless, soul-drenched vocals. The band was recently honored with three Grammy nominations for their self-titled debut—including Best New Artist, Album of the Year, and for their hit single “Colors,” Record of the Year, and Best American Roots Performance.

Prolific R&B singer-songwriter Jazmine Sullivan is coming to Portland’s Roseland Theater on February 15 in support of her incredible 2021 EP Heaux Tales. Tracks like “Pick Up Your Feelings,” “Girl Like Me,” “Lost One,” and “The Otherside,” not only provide a masterclass in vocals (WOW, can she sing!), but also displays honest testimony, accurately depicting what it feels like to date, love, and break up as a modern woman.
