Mayer Hawthorne - Friday, February 7 - Marquee Theatre

Michigan native Mayer Hawthorne executes his throwback R&B with so much period precision that a casual observer might assume the stuff was rescued from the vaults at Motown. Listen closely, though, and Hawthorne starts distinguishing himself: "From the moment that I met you, I thought you were fine," he sings over an easygoing groove in "The Walk" from his 2011 album How Do You Do. "But your shitty fuckin' attitude has got me changing my mind." Tonight, Hawthorne visits the Marquee Theater in Tempe for a solo performance. -- Mikael Wood
