Watch This 17-Year-Old Bad Ass Play With Los Lobos In Chicago

first_imgLos Lobos are currently on tour, welcoming special guests to share the stage from city to city. After a four-night stand at City Winery Chicago, the band made it over to SPACE in Evanston where seventeen-year-old Althea Grace made quite the impression. Thea is one half of the duo Future Stuff, who can only be described as Tedeschi Trucks Band meets The White Stripes meets Shakey Graves. So when the young singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist took the stage, fans of Lobos were pleasantly pleased with the in-your-face indie blues that the young woman had to offer.The not-yet-old-enough-to-drive show-stopper led the band through KoKo Taylor‘s “Voodoo Woman”, a song choice inspired by the cover that Susan Tedeschi performs. (Also note the Derek Trucks red Gibson SG). Thea first played with Lobos when she was eight-years-old, so to see how far she’s come since then was a treat for all.Thea and her band Future Stuff have a lot to be excited about, including an upcoming tour to be announced in the coming weeks. Check them out here, and enjoy the video below:[Photo by Edward Spinelli]last_img read more
