NO WHITE JEANS AFTER LABOR DAY UNLESS YOU’RE ANDREW W.K.

As the end of summer tours, summer flings, and summer weather looms on the horizon, you might find yourself trying to wring the last drops of fun and High Life out of your short shorts and beach towels. We know how you feel. We’ve got a few suggestions, and you’re not sharpening pencils yet are you?

THIS FRIDAY AUGUST 24TH

With a recording career that kicked off in 1969, releases on Desco, Daptone, Soul Fire, and most recently Truth & Soul, Lee Fields has a catalogue as prolific as it is timeless.
