“I'm Comin' Out”

Named for the first integrated jazz club in New York, Café Society formed last year as a monthly showcase for female artists in Seattle’s music scene—and in its first party of the year, tonight the Society elevates two wildly deserving vocalists. Though best known for her appearances alongside hip-hop outfits like Mad Rad and Fresh Espresso, neo-soul songstress Shaprece makes her anticipated solo debut (hence the night’s theme) backed by a six-piece band only magnified by a handful of head-turning singles like December’s “Be Like You” and the more recent “Lift.” Support comes from Fly Moon Royalty, the duo of DJ/producer Action Jackson and vocalist Adra Boo, responsible for some of the catchiest hip-hop-influenced soul in the city. It’s a night for the ladies, but gentlemen would be wise to attend. With Rocco Deluca. NICK FELDMAN
