When: Fri., Jan. 20, 7 p.m. 2017
Philadelphia: It’s an underrated hub of good music. Since 1993, G. Love & Special Sauce have brought their unique alternative hip-hop/extra-bluesy R&B sound to fans around the world. With eight studio albums under their belt, G. Love and Special Sauce have stuck to treating all of us to their always-funky vocals and kind-of twangy guitar sound. 2015’s Love Saves the Day follows in the tradition of the band’s other work, with songs like “Back to Boston” and “Peanut Butter Lips” showing just how far they’ve come in their 23 years together. Doors open at 7 p.m.; 1777 Third St., Detroit; mgmgranddetroit.com; Tickets are $45.50-$55.50.
