Black Joe Lewis is one of those booty shaking bands you just have to see live. He’s Austin’s answer to James Brown and after seeing them at SXSW, I can confidently say these guys know how to get down and have a funky good time. So don’t judge them too much by this video. They look way too composed here. The band is touring in support of his new album, Tell ‘Em What Your Name Is, and will be at Slims in San Francisco on May 16. Check Black Joe’s MySpace page for full tour details. The first leg they will be supporting Gomez. A good bill!
