G. Love & Special Sauce with Ethan Tucker

G. Love and Special Sauce will pour “Sugar” on us April 22. Their first album in six years promises to be a return to the hip-hop blues of the 20-year-old trio’s early years. Special guests include Louisiana soul man Marc Broussard, Los Lobos guitarist David Hidalgo and backup singer extraordinaire Merry Clayton, a co-star of the Oscar-winning documentary “20 Feet from Stardom.” With the original trio on tour together for the first time in eight years, they promise to perform their self-titled debut in its entirety and then preview “Sugar.” Jon Bream
