Blue Note artist Jose James has one of the purest voices in contemporary r&b. His latest album No Beginning No End showed just how much skill he has as a jazz vocalist, right on par with Esperanza Spalding. Seeing him perform at a place like SPACE in Evanston will be a real treat. Early arrival is highly recommended.

As a member of TDE, Schoolboy Q is born of a certain pedigree. Although he's no Kendrick Lamar, his album Oxymoron has proved that he has everything in him to be a bona fide superstar. It's just the beginning for Q and the hope is that this tour will help lay the groundwork for a quick follow up. His set at the Metro will be in celebration of the album, and early arrival is recommended.
