MAVIS STAPLES

LAXSON AUDITORIUM

I can’t really make a joke about Mavis Staples—she’s been a powerhouse of gospel and R&B since the ‘60s; a classic, a staple (if you will), a voice that led marches and made grown men cry. Seeing her live is said to be “beyond belief” (according to Amazon reviewer Jan Cutler, who is known for reserving praise). 7:30pm, all ages. Tickets are $10-$44
