Psycho chamber press2_600x380

Tamar-Kali, our favorite hardcore warrior soul queen, puts a new twist on her excellent Psychochamber Ensemble. From the press release: Tamar-kali Brown curates a night of bawdy, sexy, cabaret-inspired entertainment.  Brown says she developed this show because “artists of color have largely been missing from the revival of cabaret performance” at venues like Spiegeltent and [...]

CMJ: Tamar-kali opens for Fishbone–10/22

@Tamar_kali brings her hardcore soul to Le Poisson Rouge this Friday as the opening act for the one and only Fishbone.  If you missed her Joe’s Pub residency back in September or the recent Restoration Rocks show, here’s a chance to see the truth. I’m not really familiar with Noah, but I gather he’s a Vin Diesel-looking metal-rap dude.  Interesting thing about his set: It will feature members of the Wu-Tang Killa Beez: P…

…Restoration Rocks this Saturday, did you?  Hopefully not, since I think you’ll be mad to miss this lineup: Tamar-kali, Invincible, Jean Grae, Cubic Zirconia and DJ Rimarkable on the decks.

PHOTOS: Tamar-Kali’s album release event–July 16

It was a great night of music.  The last time I’d seen Tamar-kali perform was last November at Indiana University’s black rock conference.  She was very good then, but was great on Friday. What pushed it over the top was, simply, Tamar. Perhaps it was a sense of relief and accomplishment at having Black Bottom finally out in the world.  Maybe it was the nearly 300 people who showed up help celebrate the album’s release.  Whate…

Jean_tkali_santos_3.28_frontSM

Looks like Santos is the place to be on Saturday night. It'll be good to see these two women: The much slept-on MC Jean Grae and the extraordinary vocal talents of singer/songwriter/bandleader Tamar-kali.  "Extraordinary" is not too strong a word here: She can go from a soft and melodic to a furious roar.  Now, when [...]
