Editorial Review

Do you often watch the Five Heartbeats and wish you could experience the heyday of the classic soul revue? That was when school gyms and meeting halls brought together screaming youth and the heroes they adored on 7 seven-inch singles and transistor radios. The chitlin circuit hustle of three hot acts and one house band traveling from town to town will be re-created during the Eccentric Soul Revue at the 9:30 club with Syl Johnson, the Notations and Renaldo Domino, backed by JC Brooks & the Uptown Sound. Washington's own waxologist DJ Nitecrawler joins in the fun, spinning only classic soul and funk by local artists.
