When legendary label Stax Records signs an artist to its roster, you can be sure that they're not thinking about ring tone sales -- but pure soul and the type of music with the power to unhinge and incite, much like artists Isaac Hayes, Moms Mabley and RIchard Pryor did for the label in its heyday. The 2006 re-incarnation boasts Lalah Hathaway, Angie Stone, Teena Marie, and the star of tonight's Soulcial -- N'Dambi.This church-bred plus street-cred (won singing backup for and co-writing with Erykah Badu) R&B powerhouse doesn't just sing, she carries you through music with soaring vocals and soul-deep lyrics. And tonight she'll will perform songs from her soon-to-be-released album and Stax debut, Pink Elephant. Click here for a sample, but tonight, live will surely be a a better choice.
The show is from 9 p.m. to 2 a.m. at Ginger Bay Cafe, 1908 Hollywood BLvd. Complimentary admission. Visit ingridbonline.com
