The Screaming Eagle of Soul. I saw Charles Bradley perform during Bumbershoot 2011 (my first), but it was even sweeter seeing him perform in the intimate confines of the KEXP Music Lounge. This was the third show in a row I had won tickets to online. Despite the small room, or maybe because of the small room, Bradley still gave it his all, singing, dancing, and entertaining the audience with his old-school, James Brown-revived style of soul music. He even came intot he audience at the end of his set and worked his way row by row to give each member of the audience an individual, if sweaty, hug, your humble narrator included. No one refused.
