Tonight in Los Angeles: Motown Great Brenda Holloway at the Echoplex!

I've got to admit, I didn't know a thing about Angel City Soul Club until fellow HB! DJ Brian Cunningham brought it up a few months ago, but damn if it doesn't look like they might have put together one of the best shows of the year tonight.

You've got rocksteady group The Gaylads, who recorded for such legendary record labels as Studio One (amongst others).

Nolan Porter, popular Artist on the Northern Soul circuit, will start the night (and I imagine the dance floor) off with a short set. I have one single that is credited to an N.F. Porter that I remember liking, but haven't seen in years. If memory serves, Nolan Porter and N.F. Porter are one in the same. Can anyone confirm?

But perhaps the most exciting artist on the docket is Brenda Holloway, she'll be performing favorites from her Motown years, like this one:

It all happens tonight at the Echoplex, plus Hot Shot and Angel City Soul Club DJs keeping you moving all night long... HOWEVER, if you feel like a little variety once you've danced to some of the rarest, and greatest records on the planet... you can always head over to Los Globos where I'll be spinning the night's closing set, and it will be 100 percent Hungry Beat! style moving from Orange Juice to the Temptations to lot's of lesser known greats within the same theme. Either way, there's plenty to do tonight, so get out there!!
