Author and music historian Richie Unterberger presents a program celebrating the music of James Brown, one of the all-time great soul singers and charismatic live performers. The event will focus on his prime from the mid-1960s to the early 1970s, including performances of classics like “Out of Sight,” “Papa’s Got a Brand New Bag,” “I Feel Good,” “Cold Sweat,” and “Say It Loud, I’m Black and I’m Proud.”
Richie Unterberger is the author of numerous rock history books, including volumes on the Beatles, the Who, the Velvet Underground, Bob Marley and 1960s folk-rock. He teaches courses on rock and soul music history at several Bay Area colleges. His newest book, San Francisco: Portrait of a City, was published this year by Taschen.
