Patti LaBelle • R&B, soul

For realz disco queen—and forever avatar of a sinuous brand of R&B that rattles the soul as it heats the flesh—Patti LaBelle is gigging nearby—at the Isleta Casino Showroom to be exact—on Friday, Jan. 18 at 8pm. If you are as of yet unfamiliar with the work of the former Patricia Louise Holt, then may we suggest you get right with Bob by listening to just about anything the artist offered audiences in the '80s and '90s, but besides her singular hit with Labelle, there's also Gems, from 1994, if you are interested. It might be cooler if you go check out her concert though. For only $55 and a 21+ ID you can indulge in a sound that's poptastically groovy. Plus, I'm sure her band is effing hot.
