Mavis Staples to play the Satellite March 3
Last year Mavis Staples cut a great new album, "You Are Not Alone," for Silver Lake's Anti-Records (produced by her new label-mate Jeff Tweedy). Next month she's going to further cement her local bona fides with an insanely rare and just-booked-today early club show at the Satellite on March 3. Doors open at 7 p.m. and Staples and her band will play about a 90-minute set at 8 p.m. Tickets are $25 and should be on sale Wednesday night, if you want to get closer than her Conan performance the same week will surely allow.
On a totally different front, a pretty great installment of Entrance Band's residency with Sun Araw as an opener will follow her up that night -- and if you come to Mavis, you can stick around for the latter set for free.
