Black Joe Lewis hasn’t gone solo, but he is actively attempting to shed the “& The Honeybears” from his blues/soul sextet’s moniker. Whether Lewis’ attempt at rebranding the band is successful or not, the musicians previously referred to as Honeybears are still backing the talented singer and guitarist. Touring in support of their latest full-length, Electric Slave, this Austin-based group brings the sounds of Red River Street—and beyond—to Low Spirits (2823 Second Street NW) on Sunday, Dec. 8. Missourian punk band Radkey and soulful ATX trio Think No Think open the 21-and-over show. The doors swing wide at 7pm, and tickets are $13.
