It’s a big, BIG month for Title Town when Charles Bradley And His Extraordinaires roll into the ‘Burgh for a show at the Rex Theater. We’re lucky enough to be spinning a few of our favorite records during the show and now Title Town and Grey Area Productions are giving you a chance to score FREE tickets to the show on Friday and Title Town Soul & Funk Party at the Shadow Lounge on Saturday night - joining us on Saturday will be DJ's BSears & Coolhands from The New Day in Austin, Texas!
‘No Time For Dreaming” is one of Rolling Stone’s best albums of the year. RS writes, “Every brass blast and chicken scratch could have come straight off a 1968 Stax Records release, but it's Bradley's ragged, resilient powerhouse singing that makes this soul, not "soul."
Paste Magazine writes, “No Time For Dreaming not only prevails as a defining culmination of Bradley’s lifelong musicianship to date, but also furthers the argument that Daptone Records can do no wrong.”
That's it! One winner will be randomly chosen on Friday!
To hear more from Charles Bradley and other Daptone artists check out the Daptone Records website.

Stop what you’re doin’ and get your dance on this month at Title Town Soul & Funk Party when we welcome one of the premier record and dance party crews in the U.S., DJ’s BSears & Coolhands of THE NEW DAY Funk and Soul Night and FRIENDS OF SOUND RECORDS in AUSTIN, TEXAS.We’re goin’ head-to-head, tune-for-tune as we join forces with two of our favorite rare vinyl specialists all the way from the Lone Star State.We don’t do guest DJs every month, but this is a party we’ve been most looking forward to. If, for some reason, you need to be persuaded -- The New Day has been holding it down every month with a wide-spread spectrum of rare soul and massively funky funk from the ‘60s through the early ‘80s and has attracted regular guest DJ spots from some of the heaviest collectors in the game.In a city known as the live music capital of the world, The New Day has been holding its own and has created a vibe that connects with people...with the some of the finest, funkiest flowing selections of rare soul vinyl around.Finally, expect drink specials, funky SOUL TRAIN projections on the wall and the Brassero Grill gourmet taco truck parked outside. Don’t forget, you must enter through the Shadow Lounge entrance on Baum Boulevard to get in. There is NO admission to TITLE TOWN through AVA Lounge.So get yourself (and your friends) ready for a TITLE TOWN that will move your feet, captivate your SOUL, and make you DANCE...and that’s exactly what this music demands you do. It’s going to be a party.
