Fri, July 31, Stacie Eakes
Torch Club, 9 p.m., $8
Why do things change once you finally get used to them? For nearly 10 years, it was a guarantee Stacie Eakes would perform with her Superfreakes at least a few times per month at Torch Club. Now, she’s moving out of state and screwing up our comfort zone. People always knew what they’d get with Eakes: a soulful, passionate voice—with a sprinkling of raspy notes and nasal undertones. She is like an outhouse in a state park; you never know how much you need it ’til it’s gone. Tonight’s the last night to get super freaky with a dance partner as Eakes’ sultry voice serenades, so make it count. 904 15th Street, www.myspace.com/stacieeakes.
