San Antonio comes to Out of Doors at this evening of Chicano soul. The brainchild of writer-producer-musician Adrian Quesada, Look at My Soul celebrates the musical contributions of Chicano soul singers and session musicians in the 1950s and ‘60s, including Tejano trailblazers Johnny Hernandez and Ruben Ramos, who will join Quesada and the band onstage. Long overlooked by mainstream music history, these gems reveal a rich mix of influences: blues, Latin jazz, and rock ‘n’ roll, as well as traditional Mexican music like norteño and mariachi. Lively takes on classic tunes will have you on your feet as multiple generations of unsung musical heroes celebrate the unique sound of Texas.

 

Fresh off their coronation as Best New Band at the 2019 Austin Music Awards, Austin-based psychedelic soul band the Black Pumas open the night, with singer-songwriter Eric Burton and Quesada on guitar. Following their funky bold sound is soul veteran and Daptone artist Lee Fields. Fields has been performing for 50 years and now—along with his longtime band The Expressions—stands at the forefront of the soul revival with a new album, It Rains Love.

“Reminds me of the old time Motown soul music, but with a new vibe. As a Texan, I identify with this from multiple perspectives.”

“In an age of widespread despair, Black Pumas make rock songs feel like prayers.”

“Lee Fields is the coolest motherf–r to ever sing words into a microphone.”
