Henry Butler @ Jazzbones Tonight

Still looking for something to do in Tacoma on a Friday night? Well, ordinarily I wouldn't suggest coming to me for recommendations on that front. Usually my Friday night consists of staying in, drinking wine and watching a movie, and I'm sure you could have thought of that on your own.

But if for some reason you have, I would be inclined to recommend Henry Butler at Jazzbones tonight at 9 PM. Butler, blind since birth, is a masterful blues/boogie/New Orleans (and yeah, New Orleans counts as a genre) pianist, as well as a classically trained vocalist. I'm listening to his latest, 2004's Homeland, right now and it is genuinely fantastic stuff. Extraordinarily energetic. I can't wait to see what he's like live.

And anyway, it's Jazzbones, which means sushi time! (or, if you're not into that sort of thing, a solid cajun menu).

Tonight, 9PM, $12. 21+, of course.

That is all.
