Big up the "Southern Soul Spinners" making their way to the city of wind. If you happen to be in Chicago I highly recommend you check these guys out. They have amazing records and blow my mind every time.

The Southern Soul Spinners will be repping the Barrio Sounds of Latin & Lowrider Soul. Championing Sweet Soul, Doo-wop, and funk, These cats carry a torch for soul music in a way that is Just as unique as the car culture behind the sounds. For decades Mexican-americans have been fascinated with afro centric rhythms, the tragic ballads and mid tempo Soul have been championed by those in the lowrider community for decades.

Pre-game on with Southern Soul Spinner, Author & Music Historian Ruben Molina. He'll be presenting a lecture titled "Chicano Soul After the Death of Ritchie Valens" at the National Museum of Mexican Art (1952 W. 19th St; FREE), followed by a listening party and book signing starting at 6:30pm. Then head up to the Double Door at 9pm where the party kicks in to overdrive.
