Latasha Lee & the Black Ties, Serafia at Lamberts. This powerful double bill offers two variations on Austin soul. Gutsy, Gulf-coast blues singer Latasha Lee does a Southern-fried take on doo-wop and retro R&B. Her brassy backing band is led by the Williams brothers from Carnival Beats, who helped define the sound of Texas rap in the ‘90s. Serafia has a slicker, more club-oriented sound, equal parts Euro-cool and old school Detroit house. $10. 401 W. Second St. lambertsaustin.com
