ATL Soul Weekly (June 16-22): Donnie, Princess La Tremenda + more
Presenting ATL Soul Weekly, Slo*Mo’s curated look at some of the week’s most notable sights, sounds and events.
June 19 — “The Colored Section” Live Streaming Experience: When Slo*Mo launched back in 2013, we called Donnie’s “The Colored Section” one of the most important ATL soul albums of the 21st century. So, it shouldn’t be surprising that we consider the re-released version of the LP — dubbed “The Colored Section: Digital Deluxe Edition” (dropping June 18 via Motown/Ume) — one of the most important albums of the year. And you can celebrate this new edition — which features 16 bonus tracks (including singles like “Holiday,” unreleased material and a variety of remixes) streaming for the first time — at a special virtual event, starring Donnie and friends. $13. 9 p.m. More info: tuneradr.com/watch-now.
