Reclusive and Brilliant Shuggie Otis Plays Rare Concert in D.C.
For 40 years, singer-songwriter Shuggie Otis has enjoyed one of the most influential and enigmatic careers in music. Son of a legendary R&B bandleader, Otis quickly proved to be a musical prodigy. When he was only 21, he released Inspiration Information, an album that quickly became a cult favorite amongst fans and fellow musicians, including David Byrne who re-released the record on his Luaka Bop label in 2001. Ironically, it was soon after a cover of his song "Strawberry Letter 23" went to No. 1 that Shuggie dropped out of the music business altogether. Except for some rare appearances, the elusive musician has kept a low profile while appreciation for his music grows and grows. Only now, as Sony releases Inspiration Information yet again, is Otis mounting the stage for a series of rare public performances, including his concert at the Howard Theatre.

You need to arrive early!!!! We decided to go home after work - WRONG MOVE - go directly to the Howard to stake out a table. They have a menu that we couldn't try because we didn't have a table. I don't know if the food tastes great but it looked delicious! You can eat and drink while you wait for the show to begin.R&B Group Mint Condition info • Nov 13 2014 star this tip starred
