Jamie Lidell at the Varsity Theater tonight

Young soul sensation Jamie Lidell is performing tonight at the Varsity Theater, with electronic-jazz duo, Keston & Westdal. Lidell's on tour to promote his album, Multiply, which has been described by Dusted Magazine as a "silky, bright, singing-in-the-shower masterstroke of joy and elation." The album's exploding with the type of top-down-hair-flying songs you throw in before that long road trip to the coast. There's been some comparison to Jamiroquai, but Lidell's got a better voice and more finesse. (I have to believe this because Jamiroquai is on my list of "artists to hate until the end of time.") I have a near obsession with the Varsity Theater, as do many of the artists who play there, and their mid-week shows are getting saucier, especially with tech director Erik Stromstad's arena-worthy light show. How Was the Show is excited to be at the Varsity for Jamie Lidell, and we hope you stop by for some hump-day magic. [Zosia Blue]
