Shuggie Otis @ Highline Ballroom, 1/10/2012 (more by PSquared Photography)
After 30 years or so of hibernation, cult rock/soul artist Shuggie Otis seems to be making up for lost time. With a "lost" album, Wings of Love, finally seeing the light of day (and paired with the reissue of his 1974 classic Inspiration Information), and a pretty-good comeback show last week in NYC, Shuggie seems ready to say "I'm back."
As mentioned, around the time of Wings of Love's release, Shuggie's going on tour, playing NYC at B.B. King Blues Club on April 18 and tickets are still available. But he's added a second NYC show the next night (4/19) at Music Hall of Williamsburg. Tickets for that show go on sale Friday (1/18) at noon.
