    Soul singer Anthony Hamilton got one of his breaks as a backup singer on D'Angelo's "Voodoo" tour.

    Chapel Hill, N.C., has given the world a lot of indie rock sensations: the Archers of Loaf, Superchunk, Polvo and many more.

      John Mayer At Xfinity

      It's easy to rib John Mayer. Thousands have done it. The guy wrote the hit that made the lines "your body is a wonderland" into part of the vernacular — he owes us a little something. But, spurred on, Mayer has humiliated and whipped himself in the press. Mayer is the soft-rock mega-hit-making...

        In A Big Year, DJ Khaled Stops At Mohegan

        DJ Khaled's collaboration with Rihanna, "Wild Thoughts," released in mid-June, could be the slow-burn tune of late-summer 2017. It's a sultry jam, with lots of steamy and graphic lyrics in the uncensored version and a sample of Carlos Santana's unmistakable guitar tone. The song is from Khaled's...

          Prince Royce At Foxwoods

          Prince Royce makes pop that's infused with the rhythms and styles of Latin music — most specifically Dominican bachata, a sexy and bongo-and-guitar-heavy genre. Royce, who was born in the Bronx to Dominican parents, fuses elements of salsa, mambo, R&B, hip-hop and suave pop into a 21st century...

            G. Love And Special Sauce At The Warehouse

            Jack Johnson, the White Stripes and the Black Keys all might owe a thing or two to G. Love and Special Sauce. Back in the '90s the Philly outfit was making a type of semi-gritty rap-inflected soul-rock with lots of guitars jangling and slashing in front of cracking backbeats. (And a fair bit of...

              Rapper Playboi Carti At The Dome

              Atlanta rapper Playboi Carti is the rare hip-hop artist in 2017 who sort of shuns social media. That hasn't kept him from being prominent. His big hit "Magnolia," off his self-titled Interscope debut from earlier this year, seems to be about hiding some contraband in one's sock and running from...

                Nikkie Hill At Cafe Nine

                Fans of Amy Winehouse, and fans of the music that Winehouse was a fan of — Tina Turner, Etta James, Irma Thomas and other gritty soul-rock singers — should take note: Nikki Hill has got it all, the grooves, the looks, and gruff combustible feel. She sounds like she's been mainlining the juice that...
