Maleke O’Ney

Maleke O’ney, With Jill Rock Jones and The Dangerfeel Newbies
To coincide with the release of her newest funk-filled album, “Confessions of a Pentecostal Girl” (for more on that, check our summer music picks later in this issue), rising vocalist Maleke O’Ney is taking over the City Winery stage — joined by locally based soul luminaries such as singer Jill Rock Jones and the lauded Dangerfeel Newbies band, along with a few other folk. With such a star-studded cast of heavyweights, the night sounds like one helluva soul extravaganza … so have yourself in the house. July 6. $18-$24. 8 p.m. City Winery, 650 North Ave. NE, Suite 201, Ponce City Market. www.citywinery.com.

Rudy Currence
South Carolina-born soul singer/musician/songwriter Rudy Currence has been making moves in the Atlanta music world (and, really, nationally/internationally) for a good number of years now. And tonight he continues his musical moving and shaking with a show at the legendary Eddie’s Attic, performing newer tracks — including singles like the Gospel-tinged “Testimony” — older material and probably a few dope covers, too. July 21. $10. 9 p.m. Eddie’s Attic, 515-B North McDonough Street, Decatur. eddiesattic.com.

The legendary soul/funk band behind hits like “Down to the Nightclub,” “You’re Still a Young Man” and “What Is Hip?” — Tower of Power — returns to the A tonight (on the group’s 50th anniversary tour) for a two-night stand. And while the crew is here performing horn-driven classics from its catalog, ToP will also be rocking tunes from its brand-new album, “Soul Side of Town.” August 13 + 14. $65-$78. 8 p.m. City Winery, 650 North Ave. NE, Suite 201, Ponce City Market. www.citywinery.com.
