Soul, Funk, R&B, & Hip-Hop

Too $hort, Kev Choice, and Martin Luther

When: Fri., Nov. 11, 10 p.m. 2011

What do Too $hort and Kev Choice have in common, beyond the fact that they're both Oakland rappers who resettled in Atlanta in search of opportunity and prosperity? Turns out they also both claim the 99 percent -- not as an income bracket so much as an identity category. Both artists voiced rousing support for last week's general strike in Oakland and announced plans to write songs about it. On Friday, Nov. 11, they'll court the muse together, in the company of fabulous local soul singer Martin Luther, who is indisputably one of the Bay Area's most underappreciated balladeers. It'll be a rare chance to catch three key members of Oakland's hip-hop and soul dynasty performing in one place. And it's safe to say their music will be topical. At The New Parish (579 18th St., Oakland). 10 p.m., $20, $25.
