"...10:45pm, Scoot Inn; Thu., Half Step, 11:30pm Last year's debut #LeagueShit was nothing short of a triumph.

"...The rest of Friday went by too fast: the emotionally intricate folk-pop of locals Kacy Crowley and Tucker Livingston; the exuberant Blind Boys of Alabama, who hilariously inserted The Andy Griffith Show theme into "I'm a Soldier (In the Army of the Lord)"; the breakbeat gospel of Electric Church. Soul provider Solomon Burke, perched atop a golden throne, distributed roses to some lucky ladies in the crowd, then invited them onstage to shimmy through his "Everybody Needs Somebody to Love."
